#104: What I Learned From 2 Years of Doing This Podcast [Podcast]

Two years ago this week, I did the very first episode of this podcast. I didn’t realize I was making a commitment to cranking out show every week, but that’s what happened. It hasn’t always been easy.

#101: My New Morning Productivity Routine [Podcast]

I believe the way you start your day determines how it will end; productive and happy, or frustrated and fruitless.  That’s why I put so much focus on my morning routine,  which is the foundation of my personal “Productivity Protocol”.  My morning routine is an intentional set of activities designed to set me up for the best possible day. With the right routine in place, I believe we can make our best days better, and perhaps even salvage what might have been a “bad day.”
