harrisonia A4) I tweak things thru the year. (I don’t like the “vertical” approach to calendars; prefer linear. It’s just a change of year!) #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:34:01 +0000 2016

ShannonRenee A5 My procrastination habit ebbs & flows, tho I’m happy about more flows, than ebbs this year. #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:36:55 +0000 2016
JKatzaman A5 I always try to get into productive grooves, avoiding distractions. Those are still too easy to succumb to. #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:36:57 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @michelle1908 Is there some small, no-fail action you can do daily? #tinyhabits #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:37:02 +0000 2016

DrFrankBuck A6 My planning tends to follow the academic year rather than calendar year. #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:37:55 +0000 2016
michelle1908 @rsidneysmith Absolutely. I could definitely do a few push ups when I get up in the morning. #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:37:57 +0000 2016
michelle1908 @rsidneysmith I walk to work so I think that makes me feel better, but it’s not enough #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:38:18 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A6: As I noted earlier, it’s all a part of my Reflect-Plan-Act process…so the middle/latter half of October is spent planning. #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:38:30 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A6b Usually involves cleaning up and consolidating todos. #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:38:42 +0000 2016

michelle1908 @rsidneysmith @FocusCopy Please do! #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:53:12 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @michelle1908 I usually find that review/reflection times are such personal choices. But the year or your life have natural points.#prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:53:50 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @FocusCopy I track them in @Evernote and @rememberthemilk of course. ;) #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:54:12 +0000 2016

tiveront #prodchat A9: I’m hoping to get all my plans written out shortly, with success criteria. Then I can check in on progress throughout 2017 Thu Dec 22 01:55:03 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @michelle1908 I think the idea of doing #productivity sprints is great, although I don’t like #12weekyear strictly as it’s offered.#prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:55:18 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @michelle1908 I need more flexibility and not so money-focused. #prodchat Thu Dec 22 01:55:35 +0000 2016
