nmhouston @rsidneysmith I’m doing well, Ray, how are you? #prodchat Thu May 04 00:12:13 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A1a: I see a habit as productive because it helps me make progress in some area of my work or personal life. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:12:25 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A1b: It’s able to create positive outcomes consistency in some aspect of my life. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:12:49 +0000 2017
idrisclay A1: Productive habits IMO should result in desired outcomes. If not then they should be eliminated. #prodchat https://t.co/iSDoRkSIvV Thu May 04 00:13:11 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston I’m doing really well (after my allergy meds finally kicked in gear…in a new area where the pollen is… https://t.co/j6T1h7G2Kd Thu May 04 00:13:26 +0000 2017
nmhouston A1 our brain is designed to create habits to free up mental energy. Productive habits free up energy rather than drain it. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:14:38 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q2: List-making is consistently listed (pun intended) as a productive habit. What’re the benefits of making lists?… https://t.co/QehogIp9Y9 Thu May 04 00:15:00 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A1: Assuming it’s a good habit, it runs on autopilot and doesn’t feel like “one more thing to do.” #prodchat Thu May 04 00:15:42 +0000 2017
rogue_crayon99 A1 counterpoint: if we’re only concerned with desired outcomes, then this wouldn’t take hold over time #prodchat Thu May 04 00:15:49 +0000 2017
nmhouston @rsidneysmith ah, yes, the beauty of springtime ;) #prodchat Thu May 04 00:15:56 +0000 2017

ProSourcePrint A2: Brain dump. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:16:19 +0000 2017
rogue_crayon99 A1b “The price of getting what you want is getting something you once wanted…” (Gaiman) #prodchat Thu May 04 00:16:41 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston Yes, I just tasked myself with finding local honey so my body can build up a tolerance. Oh the joys of work travel! Lol #prodchat Thu May 04 00:17:08 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2: It externalizes the brain’s need to remember “stuff” so you can focus and clarify what you’re doing presently, mindfully. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:17:45 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2: It externalizes the brain’s need to remember “stuff” so you can focus and clarify what you’re doing presently, mindfully. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:17:45 +0000 2017
nmhouston A1 We are probably not aware of some of our most productive habits. What’s habit for one person might not be for another. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:18:15 +0000 2017
ProSourcePrint @rsidneysmith That’s what I said. Brain dump. :) #prodchat Thu May 04 00:18:57 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q3: Do you keep a routine (a series of habits)? What type, and how has it made you more productive? #prodchat https://t.co/cR0uLjBRPe Thu May 04 00:20:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston I tend to think about this re: productivity corollary for the 80/20 rule for already pretty productive people. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:20:06 +0000 2017

rsidneysmith …those routines. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:22:01 +0000 2017

rsidneysmith @nmhouston Yes, I think there’s a rate of diminishing returns and potential overwhelm if you don’t manage your lists well. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:22:27 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A2: I belive in “batching,” and list-making is an example. You focus on identifying the tasks in one batch & then begin execution #prodchat Thu May 04 00:23:38 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston Also, “list” is as diverse as post-its, digital lists, piece of paper, colored rubber bands that relate… https://t.co/KSnCOzxN3a Thu May 04 00:23:41 +0000 2017

idrisclay @rsidneysmith You’re a better man than I am lol #prodchat I try to identify priorities and leave room for the unknown Thu May 04 00:24:03 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston As long as the “list” represents that triggers you want, they can be extremely unique/manageable. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:24:21 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A3: I take things like weekly or monthly repeating tasks that can be batched together and make executing the whole thing a routine #prodchat Thu May 04 00:24:49 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q4: What are some productive workplace habits to develop? #prodchat https://t.co/lZUogcW7Mb Thu May 04 00:25:00 +0000 2017

BLGBusiness A8: I make sure I have some sort of reward at the end of the day i.e. fave TV show, video game, meal, etc. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:47:30 +0000 2017

rsidneysmith A8: I have tiered rewards (find my episode on that topic on https://t.co/JURp9wCIas to learn more). Highly motivating for me. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:48:19 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A8: I try to find successes of my staff and clients every day…paradoxically, the search for them makes me want to get more done. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:49:10 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A8: I like to see the plans the day and what actually happened to mesh with one another. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:49:14 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q9: Was there anything we didn’t cover about productive habits that you want to share before we close out? #prodchat https://t.co/x1vNVmdT9w Thu May 04 00:50:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @idrisclay Yes, it is! LOL https://t.co/biyBzdjLXE #prodchat https://t.co/4qPSIKh6Yk Thu May 04 00:50:45 +0000 2017
nmhouston A8 Martin Seligman’s Three Blessings exercise trains me to look out for great things throughout the day! #prodchat Thu May 04 00:51:10 +0000 2017

rogue_crayon99 @rsidneysmith A9 “Flat Growth” or put another way, that one scene in “Moneyball” that made the most sense. #ProdChat Thu May 04 00:52:11 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A9b: “The 8th Habit” is one of the most powerful habits for a productive life: Find your voice, then help others find theirs. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:52:40 +0000 2017
idrisclay @rsidneysmith A9: I’d say be vigilant about defining desired outcomes. Being productive is about finding solutions efficiently. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:53:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A9c: Purpose is so important to forming effective habits and it starts with the values we seek to live by. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:53:03 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q10: What’s one productive habit takeaway you’d like to use after today’s #ProdChat? https://t.co/SbqtiIJo9W Thu May 04 00:55:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A9: I try to create habits and then serialize them into routines. Then develop more habits. I find that creates less, bad habits. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:55:45 +0000 2017
takebackmyday A10: Great point about purpose. Not habits for habits’ sake. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:56:15 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A10: I’m going to resume my mini-exercise habits as breaks throughout my workday when I’m not on work travel. #prodchat Thu May 04 00:56:17 +0000 2017
