Great Podcast

This is a fun and motivating podcast to listen to every Monday morning. I look forward to hearing what Blake, Courtney, and Verbs all have to say. It’s nice that they all want to be productive workers without sacrificing their family lives. I just read some very critical reviews and was very surprised. It takes a lot of work to put out a podcast like this. All I have to do is click and listen, so I appreciate all the work it takes for this podcast to happen. Thank you for making this podcast available.

Too much bantering and not enough content

I use the Full Focus Planner and I was excited to learn more about how others have leveraged the system. The podcast started this way but has devolved into stupid jokes and simple lists derived from shallow research. These aren’t successful professionals sharing their expertise or interviewing authors who have done deep research, but more like high school kids doing a project.

Good info. Forced theme.

I am passionate about goals and organization, so I was drawn to this podcast. I’m also a big Full Focus planner fan. The content is good, helpful, and clear. My only gripe is this “promise to make you love Monday again.” It feels forced. And the Full Focus book’s philosophy is winning at work and at life, so it seems incongruous with the need to rest or relish non-work time as equally important to goals and well. Would be great to just offer the helpful info, rather than repeat this framework that seems inconsistent and exaggerated.
