Being more productive is possible. And, quite frankly, not that difficult once you know how.

Here are three ideas for increasing productivity and getting a massive amount of stuff done each day.

Get serious

What does this mean? According to Google, “demanding careful consideration or application” or “acting or speaking sincerely and in earnest, rather than in a joking or halfhearted manner”.

Question: do you want to get serious? I'm guessing the answer is yes or else why would you be reading this post? do you get serious?

Think about what lights you up. What are you passionate about or obsessed about?

For's this! Writing, talking, posting, etc. about productivity. I wake up every day excited about doing what I do.

Are you doing what you love to do, where you love to do it?

If not, address this first.

Maybe you don't like the commute to your job or your boss or...the wallpaper!

From Digital to Analog Productivity (The Bullet Journal)

podcast Mar 06, 2020

I have a confession to make.

When I first got into the wonderful world of productivity, I really thought it was all about calendar, to-do and notes apps.

Yeah, I know. Silly, clueless me!

Then I came to my senses! (Thankfully!)

First, some context

At 54 years young, I can remember a time when there were no cell phones (let me know if you remember even before there were cordless phones...when the phone was hard-wired to the wall!).

And then technology came of age.

This was followed very quickly by the Internet and apps.

It's no secret that in our day and age, we’re obsessed with all forms of technology (including social media and all the other apps).

Personally, I believe technology can be a blessing and a curse. The key is we get to choose. We have to be the human and in control of technology instead of the other way around.

Tough question: how many minutes, I’m sorry…HOURS, are you on your phone each day?

Sleep Is A Skill - Mollie McGlocklin

podcast Mar 05, 2020

Mollie is the creator of Sleep Is A Skill, a company that optimizes how people sleep through a unique blend of technology, accountability, and behavioral change. The company was born from “scratching her own itch” after a lifetime of poor sleep habits culminated into a mega-challenging bout of insomnia for months without end. With a background in psychology & human behavior, she went down the rabbit hole to solve her own sleep disturbances without sleeping aids. She became fascinated with chronobiology, and by extension, its practical applications to restore a state of homeostasis not only to her sleep but also to her life as a whole. Knowing the difference between a life with sleep and without, she’s now dedicated her life to sharing the forgotten skill set of sleep.

On this fast-paced episode, Mollie and I talk about the misunderstanding of melatonin, sleep architecture, sleep tracking, naps, getting too much sleep and so much more!

How to Defeat Overwhelm

podcast Mar 04, 2020

Overwhelm is a part of life. Everyone has experienced it and everyone will continue to. But how do you deal with it?

Here are four ideas for defeating overwhelm.

Recognize when you start to feel it

According to an article on Achievetv(dot)com, “Overwhelm is the body’s way of reacting to any type of threat or requirement. When you feel danger–whether it is real or imagined–the body’s defenses kick into high gear in a quick, automated process called the fight-or-flight” response or the ”stress response. The stress response is the body’s way of protecting you.”

Symptoms include:

  • Memory problems
  • Inability to focus
  • Poor judgment
  • Seeing just the negative
  • Anxious or racing thoughts
  • Constant worrying
  • Emotional symptoms

When you are experiencing overwhelm, it’s important to avoid the temptation to push through or think that this is a weakness of you and that you should be better.

Feeling overwhelmed is a real thing and everyone...
