005 Time management for introverts: a different approach
Better time management is the holy grail of productivity. Or so I thought… All through college and my early career as a scientist, I tried my hardest to get more done by cramming things into every nook and cranny of my day. I thought that if I could just manage my time better, I could achieve my goals faster and be more effective. So, I read articles on my commute to work, checked email on my break, and reviewed drafts and proofs on the way back home. Proper breaks were left to vacation time (where I just couldn’t sit still because I was so used to being busy all the time) Here’s the thing though: Busy does not equal productive. In this episode, we’ll talk about why focusing only on time management is flawed if you really want to be productive long-term. What you’ll learn in this episode ✅ Why busy and productive are not the same thing ✅ Why energy management is the missing link between time management and productivity for introverts ✅ How you can start to focus on energy instead of time ✅ Why quiet time and taking small breaks throughout the day is crucial for introverts if they want to work at their best ✅ How to join the final round of my energy management course before it gets a major reboot next year I’m curious: if you could wave a magic wand, what’s the one thing you’d change about how you’re managing your time right now? Leave me a comment with “If I could wave a magic wand, then I’d…” Remember that big changes rarely come overnight though, most of them have grown out of small practices that we do every day.

003 Lessons from building this podcast in 6 weeks
Channeling your thoughts and creativity into a finished “thing” can be stressful at times.    Where do I start?   I don’t feel ready!   I don’t have enough information to start.   I think I bit off more than I can chew…   Uh oh, it’s not going according to plan, what now?   These are just some of the thoughts that may be going through your head when the word “deadline” flashing in front of your face.  All these thoughts flashed through my head as I was working on getting this podcast out.  I shared a bit of my process in the pre-podcast series before. In this episode, I’m taking you behind the scenes again and sharing a few lessons that I learned from the planning and development stage of this podcast.   On August 11, I’m giving a free masterclass where I’ll talk about this in more detail and, more importantly, we’ll talk about things you can look out for when working on a (creative) project to get it done on time and without completely stressing yourself out.
