It happens every couple months

It happens every couple of months.

I sit down to write this article to you and decide the topic of the week’s Wednesday LIVE with Evie and nothing comes. No topic or article will show up.

It happened yesterday.

It happened today.

Nothing.

However, I did have an idea early today.

I could not do Wednesday LIVE with Evie and offer complimentary Productivity Coaching Calls to a couple people.

I mulled the idea around. “Nah,” I thought, “I’ve committed to do this every week, I’ll figure it out. I always do.”

And the idea that kept popping up was offering coaching calls.

So, I’m offering five 60-minute complimentary Productivity Coaching Calls this week.

On the call, we’ll talk about what your main frustration with your productivity is right now. And by the end of the call, you’ll have clarity and your first steps to eliminate that frustration.

You can reserve your call here.

And Wednesday LIVE with Evie will return next week.

The habits of capturing tasks and ideas

Wednesday LIVE with Evie #33


Have you ever forgotten to do quick tasks that you were absolutely sure you’d remember to do?

Or maybe you heard something that you wanted to remember later, but later you have no idea what it was?

I shared about the habits that are involved in with capturing tasks and ideas, how the habit might break down (and what to do about it). 

I got my copy in 2004

Last Thursday I attended a 2 hour “Getting Things Done” training preview.

“Getting Things Done” is a book written by David Allen in 2001 and he became the “productivity guru” as a result. He has since developed training around the concepts in the book.

I probably got my original paperback copy around 2004. And absolutely loved it.

Even then I didn’t do everything that was suggested in the book. However, it has made a huge difference in how I approach getting my things done and you can see the fingerprints on what I teach and coach.

As part of training preview, we all got a copy of the updated edition of the book (it came out in 2015). I’m looking forward to reading it.

My biggest take away from the training was around the habits of capturing tasks and ideas (and that refreshers are helpful for everyone).

For this week’s Wednesday LIVE with Evie, let’s talk about that.

Making your work space work for you

Wednesday LIVE with Evie #32


Whether you work from a home office, go to an office, or work from your dining room table, there are probably things that aren’t working with your current work space.

We talk about that.

And I share some questions to ask yourself when trying to figure out how to better use the space you have (and not get distracted).
