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.

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.
