Hello, and welcome back everybody to Episode and of productivity cast, the weekly show about all things personal productivity, I'm recently Smith and I'm joined here with my co host Augusta burnout. And Francis weight is joining us today we are going to be talking about the concept of rejuvenating, recharging. rebooting the productivity system. And so what we're going to do today is really talk about it in three parts. One is what and how do we define the concept of rejuvenating, recharging. rebooting what have you and what might lead a person to go ahead and do that, why you might want to refresh your productivity system. And there's a good reason why you might decide that you know, your system, something about it isn't quite right. And this is an opportunity to kick the tires and make the rest of your year really be on solid infrastructure. So we're going to talk about that, then we're going to segue into what are some existing methodologies that we either know of, or have tried in rejuvenating a system. And then finally, talking about some of the hurdles, one might come into contact with and experience as you try to rejuvenate your system. And therefore, hopefully, we'll be able to guide you around some of those things circumnavigate them, so that you don't experience them as you try to rejuvenate if you do attempt such process. So let's start off with what is the concept of recharging. rebooting? How do you define that idea, and I'm going to throw this out to you a Cousteau. Thank you.
