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.

Hi Folks! After a three day weekend (four, in Kevin's case) there really isn't that much to update on our productivity. We do discuss some of the value of that time off, getting some need things taken care of, and a reminder that what we do for work isn't the only way to measure productivity. After that, we have...

This week is beset with medical procedures, so expect some discussion of what we're having to do to stay healthy - dental issues, probings, and so on. We also have an update on our individual progress, and how being productive doesn't feel productive to Ursula when her word count is down due to other things needing to...
