147 - Getting Organized Step 3: Increase Productivity
2 days ago
What do you think of when you think of productivity? Remember last week when I said that when I am organized I feel like I can make forward progress on my goals and projects. For me productivity means doing MORE usually in LESS time or with less resistance. If you break down the 3 steps to getting organized: Decluttering = Removing. Organizing = Rearranging. Increasing Productivity = Moving forward faster. Let's look specifically at Increasing Productivity. Productivity comes from thinking and planning. Every minute you spend planning SAVES 4-5 minutes in executing your plan. Planning = TIME SAVED. While it may be hard to find time to plan your day, your meals or your vacation, you KNOW that when you do - everything goes easier and faster. Once again I have one caution... to be most effective, you need to have decluttered and organized the area you want to increase productivity in. These steps do need to be done in order. 5 Steps to Increased Productivity. Use the organized system. Plan. Refine and reorder. Evaluate / maintain. Execute.

One of my favourite, all-time podcasts!
Lisa is fantastic! I have listened to a bunch of "organization"-themed podcasts, and they can either be really slow-moving, obvious, or even sanctimonious, where the hosts can be really dry, boring or almost boastful about their perfect lives. Lisa, on the other hand, has a TON of great tips and systems, but more than that, she is really energetic, engaging, and talks freely about how she has tried things that haven't worked, and that organization is a process that needs to be revamped and updated as need be. I love listening to her podcasts, and I have found them to be really helpful. Her energy is contagious! Even in the rare case when I'm not really hankering to know about a certain topic, like car organization, I will generally listen to that podcast, and I will thoroughly enjoy listening to Lisa's voice, and hearing about her ideas, and without fail, I'll pick up some helpful tips, or new ways of doing things. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Too much personal promotion
I really get a lot of helpful tips on organizing and even subscribe to the mailing list, but am often annoyed by the amount of promotion Lisa does about her books. I would be comfortable betting that 1/3 of her podcasts are promotions for her books. I literally don't listen to the last 1/4 of the show because of the self-promotion. I want to give this podcast 5 stars but the promotion just kills it for me.
