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.

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.

Happy 2020! This week we will discuss New Years Resolutions and why we don't make them, what you can do instead, and maybe, just maybe to hold off on that purchase of a brand-new home exercise thing. Then we'll talk to former guest Cori Large about how things have changed, are changing, and will change for how she...
