#ProdChat – 11/20/14 – Habits with Bojan Dordevic

#ProdChat – 11/20/14 – Habits with Bojan Dordevic of Alpah Efficiency Magazine

On November 20, 2014, #ProdChat discussed the topic, Habits, with guest-host Bojan Dordevic of Alpha Efficiency Magazine. Unfortunately, our normal transcript-ing tool didn’t work, so I had to pull the raw tweets from my archived spreadsheet (which you see below). It’s readable, and in chronological order. Read through and see what the productivity enthusiasts on #ProdChat had to say about habits and productivity. Enjoy!
