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.

UPDATED: Fixed the audio edit that had the outro in the middle of the interview.

This week we discuss Ursula's med changes, and how that is impacting her productivity - which it shouldn't, since she's allowing herself to use the adjustment period as "sick time." After that, we have an awesome talk with Jazzlyn Stone,...

It is the week after the US Thanksgiving Holiday., and despite having JUST had a 4 day weekend, Kevin and Ursula are worn out from their respective tasks. The good news is Ursula finished a book today, and has sent it to her editor, but the bad news is she is too tired to appear this week. The better news is that we...
