rsidneysmith Q1: Why is it important to maintain your #productivity systems? #prodchat https://t.co/tPnzQqeEUa Thu Sep 01 00:06:10 +0000 2016
TheIdeaPump A1: Taking the time to sharpen the saw makes short work of the wood you have to cut. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:06:43 +0000 2016
milhealth RT @rsidneysmith: What’s a #productivity success you’ve had this or last week? #prodchat https://t.co/47COm4pjX3 Thu Sep 01 00:07:02 +0000 2016
JKatzaman A1 Letting your systems slide will cripple your #productivity. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:07:23 +0000 2016
macbikegeek A1 life changes, systems have to change with them, new tools come along that can improve things, keeps from getting stale #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:07:39 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A1: If you don’t maintain the system, you can’t trust it. Ultimately, you stop using it. #productivity #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:07:44 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @DrFrankBuck Awe! Sweet dogs! I have a miniature pinscher. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:08:19 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck @rsidneysmith This makes 3 of them for us right now. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:08:50 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A1: You want to make sure all your parts are in good working order so when things get hectic, nothing breaks down. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:09:20 +0000 2016
kjaymiller A1 as systems grow and develop there becomes overlap. Also some product will not scale well over time. #prodchat https://t.co/uTonbZE3FP Thu Sep 01 00:09:29 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @macbikegeek Yes, it’s definitely good to maintain your systems with stress-testing and making sure the tool still fits the job! #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:09:54 +0000 2016
prodchat RT @DrFrankBuck: A1: If you don’t maintain the system, you can’t trust it. Ultimately, you stop using it. #productivity #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:10:02 +0000 2016
TheIdeaPump A1: Maintenance identifies stress and failure points…opportunities for improvement. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:10:19 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @kjaymiller Very true! And, welcome, Jay. Good to see you on #prodchat! Thu Sep 01 00:10:27 +0000 2016
milhealth RT @macbikegeek: A1 life changes, systems have to change with them, new tools come along that can improve things, keeps from getting stale… Thu Sep 01 00:10:48 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @DrFrankBuck Wow! Dog, cat, and two fish. Enough for me for right now! Lol. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:10:59 +0000 2016
prodchat RT @TheIdeaPump: A1: Maintenance identifies stress and failure points…opportunities for improvement. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:11:11 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A1: I also like maintaining my system because it’s another opportunity to reflect on successes! #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:11:44 +0000 2016
kjaymiller I finally made it to a #prodchat!! https://t.co/EoyjIbwDer Thu Sep 01 00:12:06 +0000 2016
prodchat RT @kjaymiller: I finally made it to a #prodchat!! https://t.co/EoyjIbwDer Thu Sep 01 00:12:18 +0000 2016
TheIdeaPump A1: To me it’s like tuning a car to get better performance. It’s all about the zoom. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:12:35 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A1: And, as a tool/app hoarder, this is a natural time for me to shed some extra baggage. :) #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:13:03 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith Q2: What parts of your #productivity systems need maintenance? #prodchat https://t.co/Zj6Kxjj4ba Thu Sep 01 00:13:05 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck Great analogy! RT @TheIdeaPump A1: To me it’s like tuning a car to get better performance. It’s all about the zoom. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:13:08 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @kjaymiller Understandable. So many time zones, so many conflicts! #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:13:25 +0000 2016
TheIdeaPump A2: Capture, processing, reporting…nothing misses a second look. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:13:51 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A2: The biggie is the task list. Some daily massaging, weekly and monthly planning, #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:14:31 +0000 2016
JKatzaman A2 The more complex the system, the more maintenance needed, but no system should be left on autopilot. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:15:14 +0000 2016
macbikegeek a2 all of them but it varies which ones when. Since my switch to Trello as primary #GTD tool, still getting everything working. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:15:24 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A2: Also @Evernote. Always looking for ways to fine-tune it to improve my #productivity #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:15:35 +0000 2016
macbikegeek a2b new version of iDoneThis broke all my automations. Had to switch to ScanSnap Cloud since going on MacOS Sierra beta #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:17:07 +0000 2016
TheIdeaPump A2: Most of my personal systems are analog by choice, so it’s time to think and be creative when tuning. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:17:28 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A1: Security (physical&digital), orderliness, hardware and software stability (and learning new features). #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:17:29 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A1: And, backing up what I have (and checking automated backups) and making sure automations are working for me. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:18:04 +0000 2016
kjaymiller A2 time management, automation. I have a lot of @TextExpander scripts that need fixing #prodchat https://t.co/MBSxNsmlEb Thu Sep 01 00:18:04 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith Both of those last two tweets were A2! #prodchat #rookiemistake Thu Sep 01 00:18:20 +0000 2016

rsidneysmith Correction: A2: Security (physical&digital), orderliness, hardware and software stability (and learning new features). #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:19:35 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith Correction A2: And, backing up what I have (and checking automated backups) and making sure automations are working for me. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:19:55 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith Q3: How often should you look at the working order of your #productivity systems? #prodchat https://t.co/QnTvvuEjFK Thu Sep 01 00:20:09 +0000 2016
JKatzaman @rsidneysmith A little #productivity breakdown? #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:20:12 +0000 2016
TheIdeaPump A3: Quick checks daily, full reviews weekly. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:20:45 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @JKatzaman Haha. Something like that! Emergency client call…tweeting while talking. #ItCanWait #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:20:50 +0000 2016
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith you mean reviewing what needs maintenance/fixing/updating? #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:21:06 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @macbikegeek Yessir. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:21:22 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A3: I have a calendar dedicated to my reviews and so maintenance is scheduled in with checklists matching what needs review. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:22:14 +0000 2016
milhealth RT @rsidneysmith: A1: And, as a tool/app hoarder, this is a natural time for me to shed some extra baggage. :) #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:22:25 +0000 2016

JKatzaman A3 #Productivity systems should be checked regularly, but also be attuned to any hiccups along the way. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:22:34 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A3: If the #productivity system seems hard, that’s when I think you need to examine what’s causing it to bog down. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:22:37 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A3: Some things need daily maintenance (calendar, tasks, projects) while others need less often (automations, backups). #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:23:12 +0000 2016
BRAVOMedia1 A3 Daily! Keeping productivity stimulated with your team – love Skype – keeps information moving. #prodchat https://t.co/rY2Rebxym1 Thu Sep 01 00:23:17 +0000 2016
prodchat #prodchat https://t.co/UCGhalS5Qx Thu Sep 01 00:23:31 +0000 2016
macbikegeek a3 I tend to watch the system during reviews. any friction gets noticed ongoing so immediate add to tasks when something breaks #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:23:51 +0000 2016
milhealth I love Trello! (speaking of which … I need to clean-up mine!) #prodchat https://t.co/otI6PbZ8wz Thu Sep 01 00:23:52 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A3: The question really addresses 2 things…the built-in review and looking for what’s broken about it. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:23:57 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @DrFrankBuck Absolutely! There’s definitely the keep-working-the-system and what’s-breaking-the-system maintenance. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:24:54 +0000 2016
TheIdeaPump @DrFrankBuck Good point. Evaluating what is in the system is a separate exercise from the system itself. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:25:02 +0000 2016
GurdeepSkype RT @BRAVOMedia1: A3 Daily! Keeping productivity stimulated with your team – love Skype – keeps information moving. #prodchat https://t.co/r… Thu Sep 01 00:25:26 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A3: I look at my task list daily to put tasks in order,shift dates, etc. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:25:39 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith This is interesting…how do you define “maintenance” and “systems” in your own productivity? #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:26:59 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A3:,I have found (over MANY years) that when I am tempted to change my system, what I really need to do is clean up my system. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:27:17 +0000 2016
BRAVOMedia1 A3 Task lists are GREAT – love using @basecamp with my team! #ProdChat Thu Sep 01 00:27:42 +0000 2016
TheIdeaPump I Love Lucy analogy…system is the chocolates on the belt, maintenance is the speed of the belt. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:28:00 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith Q4: How do you identify if your #productivity systems are working properly? #prodchat https://t.co/JpNzrbwQPb Thu Sep 01 00:28:03 +0000 2016

milhealth Have to think about the timing but it should be something you schedule – otherwise, it gets neglected. #prodchat https://t.co/igskdnysGH Thu Sep 01 00:29:09 +0000 2016
prodchat Great analogy! #prodchat https://t.co/gSct9vO30y Thu Sep 01 00:29:11 +0000 2016
JKatzaman A4 If you’re chugging along as expected, chances are your system is OK. Just don’t take it for granted. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:29:33 +0000 2016
TheIdeaPump A4: My measures are spot checks to locate information and making sure items aren’t being carried forward too long. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:29:39 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A4: If I can relax, that’s a sign the #productivity system is working well. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:29:42 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @milhealth For me, totally agree. If it’s out of sight, it’s out of mind. I need to put it in the calendar so I can see it. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:29:47 +0000 2016
macbikegeek a4 two aspects: 1) friction or difficulty like @DrFrankBuck said lets u know something needs attention. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:30:00 +0000 2016

lhingram RT @DrFrankBuck: A4: If I can relax, that’s a sign the #productivity system is working well. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:30:55 +0000 2016
macbikegeek a4b 2) real examination as separate from doing is needed to look for #productivity / #efficiency opportunities to improve system #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:30:57 +0000 2016
TheIdeaPump How do you help other people tune their own systems? #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:35:20 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A3: I have some repeating tasks in my task list that help keep things clean. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:35:50 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A4: I like how @habitica shows me red items in my habit development. It’s a canary in the coal mine, &triggers maintenance review. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:35:52 +0000 2016
prodchat RT @TheIdeaPump: How do you help other people tune their own systems? #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:36:02 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith Q5: How do you track your #productivity maintenance-related tasks, projects or schedule? #prodchat https://t.co/c2tHTf6PWH Thu Sep 01 00:36:07 +0000 2016
macbikegeek a5 just like any other task or project. It goes into the system. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:36:47 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @TheIdeaPump I have regular reviews with staff and naturally those conversations discuss mutual systems, & their solo ones. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:37:02 +0000 2016
BRAVOMedia1 a4 If things are moving smoothly,on-time, on-budget & both client &team R HAPPY! Happiness is a great GAGE #prodchat https://t.co/rS1Op74n7r Thu Sep 01 00:37:31 +0000 2016
JKatzaman A5 Calendar entries complete with alerts will keep your attention for scheduled maintenance. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:37:34 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A5: Mine are in my task list as repeating tasks. (Empty @Evernote Inbox, match Current Project digital folders w/ task list.) #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:38:33 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A5a: As I said earlier, I keep a calendar with a series of reviews in place. As well, I have triggers that tell me to review. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:38:53 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A5b: For example, if my journal entries start to get sour. Or, I’m moving items from one week to the next too much. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:39:17 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A5c: Another example is when I take on any new, major project. Other stuff needs to be reviewed, and system maintenance is needed.#prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:39:55 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith Q6: How (or) does maintenance incorporate improving you and your #productivity systems? #prodchat https://t.co/HwvTcas07B Thu Sep 01 00:42:41 +0000 2016

rsidneysmith A6a: I like to keep close to my learning progress throughout the year. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:47:08 +0000 2016

rsidneysmith @caplady1225 Yes, I have a lot of testing that goes on behind the scenes when new tools come to my attention. #prodchat Thu Sep 01 00:51:12 +0000 2016

BRAVOMedia1 When there is a lul – as there always is… BLAST MUSIC – changes the mood immediately – my fav. for that Mozart #ProdChat Thu Sep 01 00:52:32 +0000 2016
