Thanks to everyone who participated in our 67th #AWCChat on Twitter, about productivity and getting things done (or GTD if you prefer.)

Here is what we discussed:

1)  When you get up & start work, do you already have the day’s tasks/projects planned out?

2)  What day of the week do you sit & plan the next week & rest of the month?

3)  Let us help you with you biggest productivity issue. What makes you CRAZY when you try to get things done?

Summary transcript for 16 May 2013 #AWCchat: Email Productivity

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 54th #AWCChat on Twitter, about how to efficiently handle your email (and yes, it’s a challenge for all of us. You are not alone.)

Here is what we discussed:

1)  Why do you think so many of us struggle w/groaning piles of email? It’s NOT because we are lazy or stupid, either.

2)  What is your process for handling email? Certain times of day/when they come in? On phone or desktop?

3)  How can you keep stuff out of your IN box to start with? Let’s talk about filters & Unsubscribing.

4)  What is ONE thing you’d like to do, starting today, to more efficiently handle your email?

Don’t miss all of the helpful how-to Resource links we tweeted, either.

Summary transcript for 28 March 2013 #AWCchat: Creating A Productive Work Day

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 49th #AWCChat on Twitter, about creating the most productive work day for YOUR way of doing business.

Several issues were discussed, including:

1)  How people on the chat define “perfect, successful work day” for themselves.

2)  Setting up a personal productivity system (paper or digital?)

3)  Summarizing one’s own “perfect work day” in one tweet, which is actually a helpful way to distill what is most important to YOUR success and productivity.

Lots of great resource links shared in this chat, too!

**  Chat schedule and topics for April 2013 coming soon.
