After a great time at OpenSource 101 in Columbia SC, the Wombat Test Subject (author and illustrator Ursula Vernon) and I will talk about using Kanban boards. We also start to discuss burnout (which will be an ongoing discussion), and Kevin takes some time to talk to Alan Wexelblat about how he stays productive.
It is the second week of the month, and so it is time to read your letters! We have a backlog, and will read a lot of them this month. We’ll also check in with our Wombat Test Subject. Hope you enjoy it!
Spring is Springing here in North Carolina, and so we will talk about one of the Wombat Test Subject’s favorite subjects : Gardening. We’ll also talk about how our moods are impacted by the change in season, touch on our urges to clean this Spring, and then wrap it all up with an great talk with our friend Nathaniel Vanderklok!
Hi everyone, this week we’re talking about collaboration, and playing well with others. We’ll also look at the letter sized TUL inserts vs the half/classic sized inserts. We’ll wrap up with an interview with our friend Michelle Wexelblat.
One thing I’m learning is that the people who use planners are often as passionate about them as I am. We’ll talk about one such encounter from this past weekend’s travels, as well as review one that the Wombat Test Subject picked up while she was out today. Finally, we’ll wrap things up by talking to the always amazing Mary Thengvall!
This week, the Wombat Test Subject is away so the Kevin will…well, work. We’ll talk about one of the challenges of not having someone around to remind you to do the simple things like eat and sleep. And then we’ll have a fantastic talk with Sarah Wendell of “Smart Bitches, Trashy Books.” Apologies for the audio problems in the interview – but at least Sarah came out sounding amazing.
This episode we’ll talk about actually using of the TUL Home planner pages. There is also a discussion of keeping organized when you move, and the impact of anxiety on productivity. Finally, we have some of your letters!
This week we’ll talk about doing some cleaning and letting go. And not just of stuff. We’ll also consult with the Wombat Test Subject about some of the finer points of self-publishing, and then we have a chance to find out how Chuck Wendig stays organized.

Hi everyone! This week we have an interview with the amazing Cassandra Khaw! Most of the interview, really, as for whatever reason the recording had issues after she answered the Six Questions, and I’m REALLY sad you don’t get to hear that part. We also check in with our Wombat Test Subject, and talk about Sysadmin Archaeology – that is, the practice of uncovering what all the Sysadmins did before you got there.
This week we’ll talk about cleaning up after someone else, that is the situation where you have taken over for someone else and for every thing you get done, you uncover two things that need to be fixed. We’ll also check in with our Wombat Test Subject (author Ursula Vernon), and see if she is back on track. And then we talk with author Kevin Hearne, and find out how he keeps himself organized.
