During the recording for tomorrow’s podcast, a very special guest stop by the studio. So I thought I’d give you a quick preview of what’s coming up. Check out this short audio clip, and see if you can guess who stopped by. I’ll give you a hint: he’s two feet tall, green, and balding. Oh, and he’s one mean mo-fro with a light saber.

This Podcast Explores How to Bake a Productivity Cake … a Recipe For Getting More Done.
The presentation covers:
Productivity is a piece of cake! It doesn’t have to be difficult to become organized and productive. When dealing with overwhelmingly complex challenges, the best solution is always the simplest that solves the problem.
The four raw ingredients necessary for optimized personal productivity are:
• Single Source Prioritization
• Efficient File Systems
• A Programmed/Prepared Environment
• Efficient Work-Flow Process
Throughout the day we can be engaged in three kinds of activities:
• Processing Activities (preproduction)
• Prioritizing activities (preproduction)
• Producing Activities
Most productivity is lost durring “preproduction.” Inefficiencies in preproduction rob us of about 20% of our time.
Goal: Get the 20% back! This is accomplished through building more efficient strategies for processing and prioritizing, and can save 1-2 hours per day.
The four raw ingredients help us get the 20% back.

Just in case anyone was curious about the behind the scenes of what make’s this site run, I shot this short video about the current tools I use to make the N8tip podcasts.
After watching the video, I realized that I say “awesome” way too much. But since I was born and raised in California, I think it’s my right, Dude! Watch the video and see how many “awesomes” you count … It’s awesome! … Now, I’m just beating an awesomely, dead horse.
