This week we will recap the reasons to do an off-site and why it is a good idea to disconnect sometimes. Our Wombat Test Subject speaks to when she is most productive, how Bullet Journals are just not for her, and why almost everyone we know who is in a creative field is running behind right now. Finally, we have a really good (but noisy) interview with freelance UX designer Dylan Wilbanks.
And for the record, I wimped out on harassing the anti-abortion protesters. They just weren’t all that confrontational.

This week is a very short episode since I am on the road and my Wombat Test Subject is on the other side of the continent. But we do have a nice chat with my manager, Eugene Yaacobi, about how he keeps himself organized, and some of his thoughts on Productivity as a manager.

This week we continue our exploration of Bullet Journals. Our Wombat Test Subject has a shocking confession, and we talk about not “breaking the chain” and how it can be done with bullet journals. We also have an interview with Systems Engineer Bill Mohler, and how he stays productive.

My Wombat Test Subject and I are on our way to BuboniCon, but took the time out to talk about WorldCon, our lack of planning while on vacation, and her experiences with OneNote. Our WTS assigns herself homework this week, and we cap it all off by chatting with our friend C.E. Murphy.

Our interview this week is with Libby Christensen, who uses the ETP and several other techniques to keep herself on track. Continue reading “Episode 7 – ETP, Training, Libby Christensen”
This week, we’re going to talk to our Wombat Test Subject about the goals she put together over the last week, and discuss creating good goals. She also has a rant, unrelated to her goals! Our interview this week is with our friend Carlota, who organizes several teams inside her organization, and we end with a letter from a listener asking about handling “list anxiety.”
(If the audio on this one is a bit soft, it is due to our new recording equipment, which I am still getting the hang of.)

This week, our Wombat Test Subject and I went in search of the perfect planner. Not that I don’t have a pile of planners, but we needed one to suit her. In addition to that, I interview PhD Student Natalie Rachel about how she keeps organized.
