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.
