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.

This week we'll talk about the hole of tech debt kevin found himself in, how he's had some big wins, and how Ursula was able to get a lot of writing done, despite having a lot of things going on that were not writing. We'll also talk about Kevin's recent dive into cult-related podcasts. After that, we have an amazing...
