Working with other people can be a challenge, and not everyone likes to wave their productivity system around so we often don’t know how they get things done! In this episode Scotty and I talked about how to work with others – whether or not we have a productivity system, how we can learn from them, and what to do to make sure the work gets done.
In episode 5 of Nested Folders Scotty and I dived into our weekly review routines. It was also good to review traps we’ve both previously fallen into with our reviews – I’ve been considering making a printed list of how I do my weekly review and if I do so I’m also going to make a list of “not to do” on it – as a reminder of those lessons that I’ve learned over the years!
Episode 3 of Nested Folders has landed, in it we talk about building bookends – those magical periods of time in the run up to something in which we get everything done that we need to! I also trick Scotty into doing maths, and most important of all: Scotty has a new mic.
On top of this, to celebrate episode 3 we’re also having a competition: listen in for details on how to win a year of OmniFocus Pro and a copy of Build Your OmniFocus Workflow.
In this latest episode of Nested Folders I introduced Scotty to the idea of the Non Zero Day. I stumbled across this a few years ago on Reddit and thought that it was a great idea, do something towards your goals every day. It might not seem like rocket surgery but saying it out loud and then reviewing your efforts can make a big difference – especially for those larger goals!
There’s more to no(n) zero days than this, so I’d highly recommend you check out the episode: Episode 2 of Nested Folders.
Today I’m launching a new podcast called Nested Folders with a friend of mine Scotty Jackson. Scotty and I met when we started testing early versions of OmniFocus 3 together, I believe our first real encounter was me helping him replicate a bug report so he could nail down the steps to email in. (Coincidentally this is also where I met Ryan Dotson who I ended up writing Build Your OmniFocus Workflow with – who would have guessed that people eager to do an early beta test of OmniFocus would also be good people to make productivity related content with?!)
Nested Folders is a productivity themed podcast, Scotty and I will be diving into all sorts of topics from project planning, to weekly reviews, when not to be productive and more. The Introduction Episode (0) and Episode 1: Checklisting a Project are out today! Episodes will come out every 2 weeks on Tuesdays.
I hope you’ll download the first episodes, give us a listen and subscribe. All of the details are over on the Nested Folders website, and the podcast also has it’s own Twitter account @NestedFolders which because I am an automation geek automatically feeds into our spreadsheet for feedback.
