    Better Process to Match Intentions to Actions

    Better Process to Match Intentions to Actions

    Your time is full of intent, but if you reflect back - how often do you do what you intend?

    Our actions are usually trying to reach some outcome, but are haphazard and habit-driven. What if we made that outcome explicit, and made our calendars reflect specific processes instead of vague outcomes?

    Change Through the Lens of Adjustment and Maintenance

    Change is inevitable, but it's not always what we think it will be. Our framework for change should be ready for change we don't expect as much or more than for change we do expect.

    Lower Cognitive Load - Pick Your Tools, Then Do Your Work

    Lower Cognitive Load - Pick Your Tools, Then Do Your Work

    Lower cognitive load by picking your tools, and then using them. Avoid the constant evaluation of tooling; it's an intuitive response to the amazing leverage you experienced when you first picked up the tools you have, but now your highest leverage activity is focus.

    Lower Cognitive Load - Primary Activities, Modes, and Cues

    Lower Cognitive Load - Primary Activities, Modes, and Cues

    Lower cognitive load by looking at your primary activities and modes, and creating cues that help you shortcut to those modes. This importantly gives you a better signal and a spike in cognitive load when something comes up that doesn't match your primary activities and modes.

Every episode gives you something to think about

Jonathan always chooses topics that leave me with something to take away and think about. Taking into account the topics he brings up has helped me see my development approach from different perspectives and I think made me better for it.

Makes you think

This podcast is unlike any other I’ve listened to. I’m a new software developer and these short, digestible episodes are excellent for helping me think more deeply about my career. I’m intrigued by how each episode is geared towards helping developers navigate the world of software developing in a novel way-by serving the mindset of anyone who wants to be a more aware developer. So glad I found this!
