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.

The last week has been absolutely fantastic, and this week’s interview is just the icing on the cake! Guest (and Habitica co-founder) Vicky Hsu and I were at All Things Open talking about being productive with Habitica. And that is what we are going to talk about on the show this week : why we like Habitica, some of the features we use, and why it works so well for us.
This week, we discuss the value of knowing yourself and having multiple projects running at once. At the same time, we will talk about how that’s not for everyone. We also have an interview with Award-winning Author and Podcaster Mur Lafferty, who discusses her workflow and how she keeps on track.
This week, our Wombat Test Subject (author and illustrator Ursula Vernon) and I will talk about being ovecommitted, and some of the challenges that come with it. We will also read and answer your letters! Enjoy! Continue reading “Episode 16 – Overcommitted, Letters”
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.
This week, we take the plunge: the Wombat Test Subject (AKA Ursula Vernon) will try using a Bullet Journal. And as a lead up to this, we talk a little more in depth about how a Bullet Journal is structured, and what the appeal is for so many people. And then before we go, we’ll read and answer some listener letters. I hope you enjoy it!
