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 may even manage to get some REAL experts on (a man can dream!) to talk about their particular specialties.

FYI - the noise in the interview is Sergi rubbing on my microphone. He wanted to be held for a large portion of the interview and LOVED the mic.

Ho Boy, what a week! First up, the world is a lot right now, and it's OK to not be OK, and it's OK to take a break, and Ursula and I will discuss that. We also have our...
