    It’s really hard to keep track of everything.
    Where do you keep all your to-do lists, shopping lists, work tasks, chores, meetings, and travel plans?
    Between notebooks, sticky notes, scraps of paper, and 1865 digital note apps, it’s easy to look busy just trying to find what you’re supposed to be working on next.
    Our guest on this episode is a marketer, writer, and productivity enthusiast.
    She founded a personal financial app.
    She thinks the best way you can be inspired and grow is to travel.
    She’s a big fan of Shark Tank. Especially Mark Cuban.
    And she describes herself as a HUGE Trello nerd.
    Ladies and Gentlemen, my new remote work friend Brittany Joiner.

    John Meese - Drastic Measures and Digital Zen

    John Meese - Drastic Measures and Digital Zen

    Desperate times call for drastic measures.
    Our attention spans are at an all-time low. Many of us suffer from FOMO (the fear of missing out) and compulsively check our devices to see what happened in the 12 minutes since we last looked at our phones.
    Our guest today doesn’t think technology and social media are bad at all. If anything, he loves them too much. However, he is so self-aware that he’s taken unthinkable steps to create physical and digital boundaries between his work and life.

    Erik Fisher - Productive Environments

    Erik Fisher - Productive Environments

    Working a "regular" job in an office has a lot of unspoken rules and accountability. You're expected to be at your desk, attend meetings, and at least be physically present between certain hours.
    Remote work permits new levels of freedom that we're often not prepared for. If we're not intentional about our time and work environment, we can get easily distracted and fall behind on deliverables.
    Erik Fisher is a podcaster, productivity savant, social media maven, bacon connoisseur, and one of my oldest Twitter friends.
    He’s the host of the podcast, Beyond the To-Do List, where he interviews guests all about productivity, getting good work done, and living a great life.
    In this episode, we discuss the effect your work environment has on your productivity, why "hustle" and "grind" aren't bad words, and why getting more done doesn't necessarily mean you're being productive.
