To-Do Systems, Productivity Hacks, and Document Storage with Drew Hawkins

Drew Hawkins is the Director of Digital Marketing at Womble Bond Dickinson, a transatlantic law firm. We worked together at my previous company, Engauge, and I thought it would be fun to 'record' one of our conversations, which always delves into our favorite to-do systems, ways that we stay productive, how we store our notes and documents, and most importantly, how we work hard to focus on our family before everything else.

Things we specifically cover in this episode:

  • Staying productive during COVID-19 (and with little kids running around)
  • Asana vs. Todoist (to-do systems)
  • Blogging cadence and writing something that feels worthy 
  • OneNote vs. Evernote (and our problem with digital hoarding)
  • The iPad Pro + Apple Pencil kick that I'm on
  • And quite a bit more...
