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 we discuss our annual trip to Anthrocon, and what I did to help both of us keep organized, even if we didn’t use our planners that much. We’ll also read some listener comments that have come in in the past week. Continue reading “Episode 5 – Goals, Letters”
