Hi, I'm Kevin Sonney, and I'm a productivity junkie. I didn't mean to become one. Seriously. But I found myself in a company provided class on the Franklin-Covey method (complete with a FREE Franklin Planner!), and it was ON. I spent the next year exploring all the options (and spending a LOT of money) on Franklin Planners. Then I discovered the "lifehack" scene.

Talk about falling down the rabbit hole! That led to things like David Allen's Getting Things Done, Gina Trapani's Todo.txt, OmniFocus, Emacs ORG Mode, Bullet Journaling, and my ongoing attempts to keep myself organized and productive.

I'm not an expert, but I can play one on the Internet, and so the Productivity Alchemy podcast was born. We'll talk about my journey, all the things I've tried over the years, and I'll invite some of my friends on to talk about what works for them. I may even manage to get some REAL experts on (a man can dream!) to talk about their particular specialties.

This week, we will be talking about the distractions we've had this last week, and how we've dealt with them. We also have some gifts from listeners we'll talk about, and finally we'll do a check-in interview with Dylan Wilbanks, who was on last year, to see how his methods have changed.

This week, we'll talk about preparing for a disaster. In . our case, it is Hurricane Florence, but it could be any number of things. We talk about online backups, password vaults, and the difference between "helpful" and "helpy." And then we will read and respond to your letters. Links for this Episode:

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.
