My Productivity Process – part 1: Intro

Intro: I moved back to using a notebook daily for my tasks and events. But I also use a digital todo list to capture long-term items and a digital calendar because it’s always available and easier to add/search events. I wanted to take some time to document my process in case it’s helpful to others. Also, it helps me catalog how I work so I can review periodically to look for efficiencies. Feel free to comment or ask questions, I’ll do my best to reply!

I’ll detail the actual components I use in this post. Follow-up parts will go through each component in more detail.

Note: this is part one of a four part series. Part two is available here. Parts three and four coming soon.

Vintage New York

YouTube offered the following video as a suggestion alongside another video I was watching. It was one of those random ones that pops up, but their algorithm has clearly pegged me because I was interested. It’s a fascinating way to spend less than nine minutes of your day. This is Read more…

My Journal Process

I’ve been writing in my journal for a couple years now. However, it used to be just a recap of the things I did during the day. Sometimes it was only a short bullet list recording events, sometimes a paragraph or two narrative. I suppose I wanted a record of Read more…

Digital Detox – done

And that’s a wrap! I did my “digital detox” for the 30 days of April. You can read the rules I setup on that link, but basically I removed most notifications from my phone/watch and committed to not checking most social media sites on my phone or computer for 30 Read more…

New Microblog (sort of)

Like most people on the internet, I consume a LOT of links, stories, memes, videos, etc. Sometimes I want to share something I read or watch. But, I’m also trying to limit my social media time and not everything fits on my main blog page (which I’m trying to post to Read more…

Digital Detox – halfway point

Yesterday marked two weeks of going through my “digital detox”. I followed Cal Newport’s direction for a 30 day digital detox from his book “Digital Minimalism.” I had been losing my interest in most social media platforms anyway and had become especially weary of all the pro and anti-President stuff Read more…

Flegan

My wife decided to become vegan about three years ago. My daughter had been vegetarian for most of her life at that point and decided to go full vegan shortly after my wife. Since that time, I’ve certainly changed my eating habits … mostly for the better. I basically have Read more…

Notion.so Dashboard

I started using Notion.so a few months ago, then decided to pay for a year subscription when they dropped the price to $4/mo. Since that time, I’ve really taken to adding notes, structuring things, working on projects, etc. It’s a work in progress (like everything in life), but Notion is Read more…
