We can safely say that we’re a bit of time management & productivity freaks around here. Why would we even consider creating a piece of software that focuses on a timesheet system otherwise?
But as ordinary human beings, we also draw inspiration from other people focusing on what interests us. New angles to the delicate art of time management and productivity are always a nourishing meal for the mind. Here are 11 Twitter personae who are pretty educational when it comes to time management & productivity bits of insight.
#1 Craig Jarrow @TMNinja
Who: Obviously, Craig is a time management ninja who battles chaos, unmanaged tasks and shows the right path to time management. Straight to the point with his actionable advice, he’s a favorite of ours.
Why: We fell in love with his “5 ways a positive attitude makes you more productive” article. Especially the silver lining bit resonates especially well with us, as we’re natural born optimists.
#2 Christian Reber @christianreber
Who: Christian is the founder of the legendary productivity tool Wunderlist. We love it. Some of our clients love it too. It’s simply wunderful.
Why: Wunderlist is enough of a standalone reason for following Christian. Aside from that, he’s an important inspiration to us, as Wunderlist’s headquarters are in Berlin – the same as ours.

Who: Violeta is a creative marketing guru with various bits of advice scattered along her website (and Twitter). We think her trademark is the enchanting way she talks on…well, just about anything that interests her.
