Episode 020. All this month I’ve been talking about systems and processes, and as we wrap up July, and before I move into time management and helping you create working systems, I want to really hammer home the fact that the basics need to be in place before you succeed with your proper workflows. Are you getting distracted by shiny new tools and the next big thing, and essentially harming your productivity? In this episode, I talk about the things you need to watch out for so you don't get sucked into a time-sucking rabbit hole.

Discussed In This Episode:

  • How I still fall prey to shiny objects
  • Why productivity tools can actually lead to an avoidance of work
  • How the latest tool only enhances what's already there (if your unproductive, you'll just be more unproductive)
  • The big thing I want you to do with your current task management system
  • Tools vs. skills
  • “There’s an app for that” but why you don't always need it
  • Fear of better options - what is it and why you need to try and avoid it
  • My biggest tip for you to just keep moving forward
