Productivity is more than trying to get out of the office by 5 Friday afternoon, it’s about building a life you love and focusing on the work that matters to you.
In our podcast, we are breaking down productivity by sharing personal, down to earth, stories and struggles combining meaningful and intentional action steps with practical tips and tricks.
It’s our hope that this podcast will open your eyes to the “why” behind the productivity. Defining purpose to your life and building systems to help you get more done, have less stress, manage your energy, define goals, and more!
You don’t have to be a self-help junkie or productivity nut to enjoy this show. We’ve done all the research and have spent years reading books and articles, testing apps and products, and implementing many productivity systems into our own lives.
By listening to this show, you can learn from our mistakes and learn how to connect purpose with productivity.

Waiting For List
The waiting for list is a piece of the Getting Things Done methodology that helps you keep track of things that are not on your action list, but most likely someone else's action list. It's a simple way to clear up psychic weight and not forget opportunities that you might need to followed-up on.
Checkout out my article, Can’t Keep up? Make a Waiting For List, about the waiting for list.

The best productivity podcast
It's the best podcast out there. Josh N John are really amazing to listen too. Thanks
My kind of podcast! A+++
I am always looking for podcasts to give me the motivation to get things done, and love listening to the different workflows of different people. I recently found johns blog (beautiful blog, by the way) when looking up bullet journaling, and that led me to the podcast. A great conversational podcast, keep up the great work!
