Join me in this one-of-a-kind conversation with Dr. Melanie Wilson as we explore how the two of us are using SkedPal Beta - the new schedule and calendar optimizer.
She's a productivity blogger who tests out scores of app, approaches and tools and then writes about each of them. As a homeschooling Mom of 6, she has a very busy life - the pefect place to test new ideas.
In this conversation we look at how we have adopted SkedPal to our very different lives.
During the conersation we touch on a number of information sources:
Melanie's post on SkedPal - http://www.psychowith6.com/automatic-scheduling-busy-people/
My recent post on optimizers like SkelPal - Learning to Optimize Each Day’s Plan from the Controversy Between Listers and Schedulers [Research]
My guest-post on Melanie's blog on "Why college students and CEO's manage their time the same way"

Michael Einstein, an expert in email overload, joins me for this conversation. We tackle the thorny question of what someone needs to do to manage all the channels of information we currently use, their proliferation and the demands they place on our time.
We also look to the future and ask what mindset and techniques we must use to tackle new, unforeseen channels.

But one of his greatest achievements is the research that he completed to finish his book, which shares the name of his site. He interviewed 50 CEO's from around the world and in this interview, he shares what he discovered. In particular, I ask him about their scheduling habits and what they do to deal with the high number of commitments that come at them each day. Tune in to hear the results of his first-hand data collection.
