I have returned from MAGFest, and have a severe backlog. We’ll discuss how that affects me, how it affects Ursula, and what we’re doing to get it all done. And thinking of a backlog, we’ll be reading your letters this week, and getting that done at the very least.
This week, our Wombat Co-Host has returned, and we discuss how changes in routine can throw us way, way off. This includes changes to schedule, changes in stress levels, and how this impacts the ability to focus. We will follow this with a fantastic interview with Debra Baker. Enjoy!
This week, we have the interview from Productivity Alchemy LIVE! at WindyCon 45 on November 10. Before that, through, we discuss some of the challenges of leadership, why Ursula doesn’t work with others, letting go of things you can delegate, and stepping back when it isn’t working.
This week we talk about some goals we have moved forward recently. This included the unexpected need to migrate from one hosting provider to another. We then discuss what to do when something just isn’t working, the joy of throwing things out, and finish the episode by talking to production potter Frank Gosar.
This week, I am flying solo while the Womat co-host heads out to a speaking engagement. We’ll talk a little about what has kept me from being as productive as I’d like this week, some exciting news, and we’ll wrap up by talking to Emily Guyton-Lange.
The focus of this week is on the AMAZING interview I did with my friends Bill and Laura. I do take a moment to discuss taking a day off since I recorded this one on Labor Day here in the US, and have given both the Wombat Co-Host and the Teenage Test Subject the week off.
After a refreshing break, we return this week with our status on catching up post-con. We’ll also talk about how Kevin is using his Bullet Journal and the challenges around having one person use a digital calendar and the other using paper. We’ll check in with the Teen Test Subject, and then talk to Jim C. Hines on how he stays productive!
We spend a lot of time this week talking about talking – or rather, talking about speaking in public – since WorldCon is just around the corner and the Wombat Test Subject (author Ursula Vernon) has to prep not one, but two speeches she probably won’t have to give. We follow that up with Kevin’s initial foray into Bullet Journalling, and wrap it all up with your letters and comments!
We are home from AnthroCon, and we’ll talk about the stresses and organizational hurdles we encountered while we were there. And then, since it is the second show of the month, we have answers to your letters!
We are at AnthroCon this weekend, and we are looking forward to meeting everyone of our listeners who is able to come. In the mean time, we have a really good interview with Dr. Jennifer Askey, an Academic and Career Coach.
