Hi everyone! The Wombat Test Subject (Ursula Vernon) is on book tour this week, and so we are going to jump straight into the interview with Theresa Colon of Wounded Birds Ministry, and the very long conversation we had about how she keeps herself organized, coping mechanisms, and the role of spirituality in her own productivity. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
This episode we have some big news, which we will talk about first thing. Then we follow up with a discussion of how our Wombat Test Subject (aka Ursula Vernon) did with re-integrating to-do lists into her life. As a part of that, we’ll talk about the value of task grooming and pruning, which is something we should all do every so often. Finally, we have an interview with Lydean Kenzall, who also has a giveaway for us this week!
This week we talk about how Kevin stayed productive this past weekend at MAGFest, where he was part of the event Security crew. We will also talk to our Wombat Test Subject about where she is at in her productivity journey, and then we’ll read some of your letters, with color commentary from special guest LizardBeth!
I am packing up to go to MAGFest, and so we talk a little about prep for the trip. We also touch on mind-maps, editing books. Then we launch into an interview with one of my favorite authors and a really cool person, K. C. Alexander. We had a lot of fun talking, and I hope you enjoy hearing it as much as we enjoyed recording it.
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.
