    Episode 188 - Boring in a Good Way, Heidi Waterhouse

    This week the Wombat Co-Host (Ursula Vernon) and I will talk about how life is kind of boring right now, in a good way! Spring is here, there are plants to plant, chickens to prepare for, and words to be written. It sounds SO MUCH more exciting than it is. After that, we have an amazing talk with Heidi Waterhouse about how she stays productive!

Encouraging in all the good ways

Practical, big-hearted, flexible, & funny. Try something, change something, and hear how other interesting people try to get, remain, or return to being productive.

Meets you where you’re at

Productivity Alchemy is a productivity podcast that doesn’t leave me feeling inadequate, and that actually gives me some tools to be gentle with myself while I keep working on my own stuff. It’s funny, nerdy, and down to earth.

Forgiving & Helpful

They point out frequently that there isn't one system perfect for everyone and that everybody fails sometimes. It's a great podcast to listen to for ideas and to feel better about not being perfect. And the badges are fun.
