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, 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.
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!
This week we will discuss the pros and cons of “disconnecting” as we are about to head off to a short get-away that will have spotty to no internet access. We also talk about balancing out productive and non-productive days. Finally, we have an interview with friend of the show and long-time listener Cori Large, to find out how she stays organized.
This week we talk a little more about why and when we play video games, and how it is important for us (and many others) as part of our self-care routines. We’ll also catch up on the Wombat Test Subject’s productivity, and top it off by talking to my cousin Susan Anderson about how she stays productive.
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.
