How do people from a variety of fields get stuff done? Peter Akkies and his guests go deep on why and how people do what they do.
Derrick Reimer from SavvyCal - Can You Regain Your Confidence After Failing?
How do you regain your confidence after launching a failed product? How can you transition from wearing all the hats in a business to delegating tasks? Why is it so important to save your most productive time for your most valuable work?
Dianna Allen - From Writing About Garage Doors to Building Two Successful Businesses
How do you start a business from your mom’s kitchen? What effect does a supportive partner have on growing a company? And how do you juggle two wildly different businesses that both need your attention?
Steph Smith - Why There Used to Be No Such Thing as “Priorities”
Why did people use to talk only about “priority” in the singular? What’s a great method for choosing what goal to work on next? And does setting arbitrary deadlines to motivate yourself work?
Andrew Barry - How to Make (Online & Offline) Learning Suck Less
Why should you learn from experts as well as from people who are just a little ahead of you? How do you capture and keep people’s attention in online trainings? Where do you find the courage to quit your job and start your own business?
Matt Ragland - Should You Use an Analog Task Management System?
Bullet journaling can be very effective. Digital task managers are (obviously) amazing. Which is best—or can we combine the two?
Jonathan Stark - Getting Good at This Skill Will Change Everything
Why is marketing NOT b******t? What does Karl Marx have to do with how we do business? And why is hourly billing completely nuts?
Great Show, Peter!
I love the show Peter! There is so much theory in the podcast world, but I really enjoy the practicality as it gives some real world, applicable knowledge. Keep ‘em coming.
Peter might consider interviewing former vegans who had to give up the diet due to health concerns including in many cases cognitive decline. A vegan diet does not work for everyone. And if a diet is causing health issues, especially cognitive decline, then obviously it does not make for a productive person, which is purportedly the subject of this podcast. Also, to counter some misinformation brought forth from a guest: Not all beef gets it’s B12 from supplementation. A grass-fed cow raised on a regenerative farm gets its B12 from the soil which inevitably gets into the cow’s stomach when it eats the grass. I personally have tried vegetarianism once, vegan once, and then just reducing meat intake. Every time I experienced cognitive decline. So this podcast really just does not speak to me.
Super insightful and well-made podcast
This is great stuff. Peter really knows what he’s talking about and is a great interviewer. Highly recommend!
