It is that time of year again – all the blog posts, radio stories, and articles about “Meeting your Goals in 2018!” and “Be Your Best You in 2018!” – and we have opinions. Many, many opinions. We also talk about strategies for doing a yearly review, celebrating your successes as they happen, and not feeling like a failure in February. After all that, we interview friend of the show Bertha Tang, and talk about how she stays organized.
This week, we will start by talking about having a “miss” day: a day when something interferes with your planned activities and throws you off. After that, we’ll talk about doing big things a little bit at a time (a.k.a. “eating the whale/elephant”). After that, we have a chance to talk to author, podcaster, and vlogger Matt Wallace.
Last night many of you may have noticed that KUEC Episode 260 posted to the Productivity Alchemy feed. Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused, and the episode has been removed from the feed.
Once more into the mailbox! This week we will announce the winner of the planner giveaway from Episode 23! After that, we discuss the next app for our Wombat Test Subject to try, followed by your questions and comments!
Hey! I’m just back from Scrum Manager class, and we’ll talk about that a little this week. We also check in with our Wombat Test Subject and how she is doing with Remember the Milk, and her rant on certain other software tools. Finally, we get a chance to talk to our friend Jacob Dawson about how he stays productive.
This week we tackle planning for the holidays, and then we review a pile of planners we’ve picked up as we look towards the new year. We will even give one away, and you can find out how you can be entered into a drawing for a Simple Elephant Planner! We also talk to Terri Ash, who we met at Arisia earlier this year, and find out how she keeps herself organized.
Photos of the planners are linked below.
This week we discuss being able to focus on one thing, and one thing only, start to finish. Our Wombat Test Subject finally tries out Remember The Milk, and we get to hear what she thinks. Our interview this week is with one of our favorite people, Deb Kosiba from Seward Street Studios.
Slightly shorter show this week, since I am fighting off a mild case of “Con Crud.” That’s OK, since we talk to Jeff Eddy from SofaWolf Press this week! We also find out why our Wombat Test Subject still hasn’t tried Remember the Milk, and discuss her win when scheduling her next book tour.
Hi folks! We’re gonna start off this week with an apology, and then get to a quick review of TaskWarrior. And then our Wombat Test Subject and I will answer your letters!
(Also, I really need to get a mouse that doesn’t make such a loud click)

November is upon us, and it is time to start the discussion around 2018 planners (if you are a paper planning person). It is also time for NaNoWriMo, and our Wombat Test Subject (Ursula Vernon) has some advice and thoughts on the process. Finally, we have an interview with our friend Tarus Balog, who talks about his experience in Open Source and how he and his team stays productive.
