Ask ProductivityCast, 1st Edition

We get your listener messages and we love them! So, keep them coming! We try to respond to most of them via email response when we get them. For those that require more than an email, we have started to respond to them here in episodes together. And, this is the premiere edition of our Ask ProductivityCast episode series. Whenever we get a few questions that require some heavy lifting, we’ll put out an Ask ProductivityCast episode. So, keep those questions coming!

Raymond Sidney-Smith 0:17
And Welcome back, everybody to productivity cast, the weekly show about all things personal productivity, I'm Ray Sidney Smith.

Augusto Pinaud 0:24 I am Augusto Pinaud.

Francis Wade 0:26I'm Francis Wade.

Raymond Sidney-Smith 0:25Welcome, gentlemen. And welcome to our listeners to another really exciting episode. I think today we're actually going to be answering listener questions. And so we have had a few questions that come in. Typically, I actually get emailed based questions from our listeners, and I respond back. And so if you ever do send an email, I'm usually behind the helm answering those questions, and they're just usually simple ones that I can usually respond to pretty quickly and easily. But once in a while, we get some questions and we thought, well, let's actually put these together and answer them here on The podcast would help the the entire community listening. So today we've chosen three different questions that we've received over time. And we're going to answer those questions for the specific individuals, but also for you as a broader community. So let's start off with our first listener question. Our first listener question comes from Dave. So let's get into it. And so our first listener question, as I said, is from Dave, Dave says that he's a longtime GTD practitioner, he has pulled in elements of personal Kanban JD Myers getting results, the agile way. And recently, he's been using the bullet journal by Ryder Carol. And so he feels like the layers are weighing him down.
