This week we will talk about the difficulties our Wombat Co-Host (artist and author Ursula Vernon) is having with design and fonts, and how that is actually an Agile process. We don’t dig too deep into Agile and Scrum, but we do give a brief summary of what they are and how they are (and aren’t) used. We also check in with the Teenage Test Subject, and then talk to Sandra Tayler about how she stays productive.
This week on our productivity check-in, we talk about the projects we are both moving forward on. It is a good week so far, and added to that, I get to share the talk I had with Howard Tayler a few months ago. Enjoy!
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 is an episode I’ve been REALLY excited about for a while now. This week we have part one of the interview with one of my favorite people : Dino Sarma. Before we get to that, though, we discuss when and why to send gifts during the holidays for business purposes, as well as the need to pay your contractors and freelancers on time, and how that differs from making payments in a corporate environment.
This week my Wombat Co-Host and I discuss dealing with the emotional impact of job hunting, the holidays, and some of the related challenges. After that, we take some time to talk to Christy “Lilisonna” Howard about how she stays productive in both her professional and personal lives.
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, 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.
In our typical manner, what started as a discussion about what we did this week worked it’s way around to the impact of foot health on our productivity, followed by a discussion of how Ursula isn’t REALLY celebrating the completion of her newest book. After all that, I talk to Claire A. Miller, who is a librarian and crafter, and has some really cool things to share.
This week, we will discuss how one handles being suddenly unemployed, and what I’m doing to cope with it. We will also check in with the Teen Test Subject, and wrap up by talking to author Malka Older.

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!
