  43. A2- I love the collaborative functions, sharing is easy, not a full fledged suit, plenty for me though! #ProdChat
  44. A2a- LOVE Google Forms! Great for surveys, RSVPs. Most underused, but best, function IMHO #ProdChat
  45. A2 Dying to hear this! The only thing I like about GoogleDocs is the live multi-user functionality in a word or excel doc. #ProdChat
  46. @apinaud Wow!! I hope you’re using a paired keyboard. ;) #ProdChat

  65. @apinaud It can’t be… the Palm only died when the first iPhone came out…even though it didn’t have a todo list #ProdChat
  66. @michgunn the palm was dead before. People new them as Treos #ProdChat
  67. It could do basic text, a rudimentary database function…but was awesome at the time! Helped me keep track of my team. #ProdChat
  68. From a productivity standpoint, it’s amazing what we have available today. I think the key is managing less better. Not more… #ProdChat
  69. Ah! RT @apinaud: @michgunn the palm was dead before. People new them as Treos #ProdChat
  70. Q4- Email is a big problem for most. Do you have any email productivity tips? What’s your biggest struggle with email? #ProdChat
  71. A4- I’m a Gmail fan and love its filter functions. I’m sure I have nearly 100 filters in place. #ProdChat
  72. @DanielHayes Agreed. In some ways it’s worse to have so many options. More choice can be overwhelming, not helpful. #prodchat
  73. Q3- When are you most productive? How you discover that? Had that change overtime? #ProdChat
  74. Q3- When are you most productive? How you discover that? Had that change overtime? #ProdChat
  75. A4a- Filters let me autoarchive to designated folders, auto delete, auto everything! #ProdChat
  76. A4b- I also love the Canned Responses function in Gmail!! #ProdChat
  77. A3 I’m most productive earlier in the day. I discovered that when I tried going to work earlier instead of staying late always! #ProdChat
  78. A4c- I’m a huge TextExpander fan and canned responses are like built in text expanders for Gmail #ProdChat
  79. A3 Took me a really long time to grasp that I got more done in a shorter amount of time in the morning than after a full workday! #ProdChat
  80. A4d- Biggest Struggle? Lots of email. I sign up for lots of email lists. I edit every so often to keep my sanity #ProdChat
  81. A4e- That said, I don’t stress myself over “inbox zero”…my priority is effective communication #ProdChat
  82. A4e- That said, I don’t stress myself over “inbox zero”…my priority is effective communication #ProdChat
  83. @michgunn same here. The reason I keep working at 4:00am #ProdChat and wrote a book about it #ProdChat
  84. Q3 The closer to the deadline the more productive that I am! I really need to work on procrastination and focusing! #ProdChat
  85. A4 I stopped checking email incessantly during the day. 3x/day now. I use also @SaneBox to filter out all the non-important #ProdChat
  86. Okay…onto Q3:
    A3- Definitely my morning. My morning routine is petty sacred. #ProdChat
  87. A3a- I break the “typical” productivity rules: I check email, sometimes FB. But I don’t act on them right away or get distracted. #ProdChat
  88. Wow! Auto delete! :O RT @DanielHayes: A4a- Filters let me autoarchive to designated folders, auto delete, auto everything! #ProdChat
  89. Yeah, not that early. ;) RT @apinaud: @michgunn same here. The reason I keep working at 4:00am #ProdChat and wrote a book about it #ProdChat
  90. How do you all feel about the new gmail inboxes? I’m still testing this out but I think I prefer it to all go into one box. #ProdChat
  91. Seems like @michgunn and I need to make note to this auto delete thing @DanielHayes #ProdChat
  92. @Killingchaos I use only 2 inboxes. I have a great routine there, so I opt out of the new Tabbed version #ProdChat
  93. A3c- My military career “trained” me for early mornings! Now I almost never use an alarm clock #ProdChat
  94. Q5- On your show you deal with leading a simple life. Can you give some examples? What had change since the show start to now? #ProdChat
  95. @DanielHayes Auto delete scares me. But HOW liberating that must be!!! #ProdChat
  96. Seriously! :) RT @apinaud: Seems like @michgunn and I need to make note to this auto delete thing @DanielHayes #ProdChat
  97. @nicolesteiner_ That’s called Parkinson’s Law. A good corollary is “If I wait until the last minute, it only takes a MINUTE!” #ProdChat
  98. @apinaud @michgunn @DanielHayes Auto delete in filters is great! Saves me from having to unsubscribe from everything. #prodchat
  99. @Killingchaos @apinaud @michgunn Yes, and it’s great to auto archive backups, email subscriptions, etc. #ProdChat
  100. @michgunn Well, Michelle, your option is simple to use the filter to archive. No loss then! #ProdChat
  101. @DanielHayes Nope. I’m sold on auto-delete. I’m going to give it a whirl. I don’t need to archive junk. ;) #ProdChat
  102. +1 “@michgunn: @DanielHayes Nope. I’m sold on auto-delete. I’m going to give it a whirl. I don’t need to archive junk. ;) #ProdChat
  103. @DanielHayes @apinaud @michgunn I also use it to auto archive store coupons so I can access them later & they don’t clog my inbox #prodchat
  104. @DanielHayes Looking forward to your answer to Q5!! Did you see it? It flew by in the middle of our discussion there… #ProdChat
  105. Cool idea “@Killingchaos: @DanielHayes @apinaud @michgunn I also use it to auto archive store coupons so I can access them later #prodchat

  108. Q6- What is one final key for you to staying focused and productive while leading a simple life? #ProdChat
  109. A5- Looking to bridge the gap between consumerism and minimalism. We not minimalists, we’re somewhere in between. #ProdChat
  110. A5a- One example is our Edit & Forget It Challenge to eliminate 2013 things from our life in 2013 #ProdChat
  111. A5b- We’re already over 3000! It feels great! My wife @GetSimplifized is a Professional Organizer so we’re pretty org’d! #ProdChat

  120. A6 I try to make sure all my commitments are attuned to my Horizons of Focus (#GTD). That filter helps me simplify my life. #ProdChat
  121. @michgunn It helps so much to have lenses or filters to help you reach your goals, does’t it? #ProdChat
