Looking to learn something useful from a productivity podcast? Tired of the stale "interview-the-author" format which just regurgitates stuff you have already heard? Join me at the 2Time Labs and listen in as we attempt to create a new product, service, tool or aid in real time. It's not an interview, but a joining together of minds where my guest and I use everything we can find to craft something new you can use to improve your productivity. Sometimes we hit the mark... sometimes we don't, but you be the judge! Along the way, we have a fun time reinforcing ideas you know and showing you a few you don't. Even when we don't quite meet the target, it's a hell of a ride whether we succeed or fail. It's like nothing you have ever heard!
Welcome to my podcasts on Time Management 2.0. I'm the author of Bill's Imperfect Time Management Adventure, and the creator of...

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.

How has the world changed so that life appears to be so much more hectic? Why aren't we coping? Should we be? Are women at a disadvantage due to inherited cultural expectations? These aren't easy questions to answers, but my guest Brigid Schulte, author of Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No-One Has the Time tackles them all in this interview. http://www.brigidschulte.com/

Pat Brans is a time management and productivity author who writes for Forbes magazine. He also the owner of the Master the Moment website.

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.

Julie is an expert in adult learning and in this episode we looked at the challenge of time management training which so often consists of tell, tell and more telling. Should an instructor just hand out detailed practices and sit back and wait while the magic happens, or is there a better approach to instruct learners. She's a fascinating guest who has a wealth of knowledge. In fact, she was teaching with such gusto that I had to build a short glossary of terms she used: Hyperbolic discounting - This is a concept from behavioral economics that describes the tendency to discount a reward more the longer it will be delayed. Cognitive load - This it the idea that people have a limited cognitive capacity for information or mental activity at any given time, based on the limits of working (or short-term) memory. If you exceed that capacity, the person can't process or retain additional information. Cognitive bias - there are many different types of cognitive biases which lead to faulty decisions (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cognitive_biases) but many of them are due to shortcuts in how we understand and process information. Implementation intentions - Implementation intentions are a way to create behaviors for yourself by mental associating a trigger with a response (If x happens, I will do y), and are based on the work of research Peter Gollwitzer.

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
