What is #ProdChat?

Productivity Chat, or #ProdChat, is an hourlong Twitter conversation for productivity enthusiasts and those looking to improve their personal productivity to engage in topical dialog to share, learn and connect with one another every Wednesday at 8PM ET / 5PM PT. Participants interact using Twitter, which means you'll need a Twitter user account/profile (free) and, if you want, a Twitter chat tool to follow along with the flow of tweets (so see below for recommendations).

The past tweetchat transcripts are below the comments on this page.

We have a different topic every Wednesday at 8PM ET / 5PM PT, so you can set in on repeat in your calendar and join us!

The focus of #ProdChat is to facilitate building productive habits by helping individuals share their experiences and knowledge about what creates a fulfilling life. We have a specific productivity topic (or expert) for every chat switching between challenges, successes and contemporary issues that are pertinent to any person looking to achieve more and feel fulfilled in life and work.

As said earlier, you do need a Twitter user account/profile so click the link in order to join us in the conversation.
