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...

in 2013, Dr. Melanie Wilson spent almost the full year testing one new productivity approach or method each week. She documented the results on her blog in a fascinating journey through some of the best ideas available for improving time-based productivity. Tune in as I interview her on this unique adventure and then visit her blog at Psychowith6.com

In December 2013, I was interviewed by Jacob Paulsen of 12booksgroup.com, a reading club that tackles one business book per month. They discuss the contents on Goodreads, and invite authors in to interact with their members.

While their interviews are accessed by members-only, he was kind enough to share the podcast with us here at 2Time Labs.

We looked at the ideas underlying Bill's Im-Perfect Time Management Adventure, and why I chose to write a business fable as opposed to a traditional book.

What are the different styles in which people think about their use of time? Tony Murphy of Time Diagnostics has invented an approach to giving each of us some insight into one of 5 time perspectives that adults tend to use each and every day. Tune in to hear how his tool can be used in a team environment to improve the productivity of the entire team. Once again, he reinforces the idea: one size doesn't fit all.

What is the difference between trying to manage time, struggling to manage stuff and managing "time demands?" A time demand is an individual commitment to complete an action in the future - but that definition is just the start. I share all that there is to know (at this time) about one of the key discoveries behind the work we do at 2Time Labs.

Doing a diagnosis of your current time management methods is the natural next step if you don't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions for your personal productivity. Join Val and Jayne from Queensland, Australia as they return to talk about the power of starting with insight about what you really need at the start of your efforts to become more productive.

In this interview with Val McDougall and Jayne Jennings of Save-Time.org and Pink Shoe Power, we explore the reasons why no single time management solutions fits everyone, and why we need custom solutions. We discover why we need to provide methods for learners to improve their particular, individual skills, even as they take charge of finding their own way. It's all about following the principles of Time Management 2.0 which are built on andragogy - the study of adult learning. Here's the link to their website: http://save-time.org

A speech I gave at the HRMATT Conference in Port of Spain on May 13, 2013 on the ways that time management 2.0 can be used to lift executive performance. From the conference brochure: “No man, it’s alright. No problem.” The Caribbean is famous for its laid-back attitude, so perfect for getting away from the stresses of the world's capitals. However, it’s not so much fun when you live here and have to experience this attitude first-hand at the Driver's Licensing Office. Why does this and other awful experiences persist? Our research at Framework Consulting tells us that it’s a historical backlash. Slavery and indentureship brought harsh consequences for the smallest infractions, and as its descendants we have responded: our workplaces are remarkably free of consequences, feedback and real accountability. Reversing the tide of history will take more than just talk however. A few years ago we embarked on a project to train over 80 of the top executives of a regional conglomerate in three countries - primarily in Trinidad but also in Barbados and Jamaica. Quite separately, we also conducted the same transformation program in these three countries in different companies. We learned that our region's professionals are loathe to give feedback, but also that it's easy to correct the problem with the right intervention using customized cases and video-taped feedback. Come and learn the nuances of changing a core behaviour that plagues Caribbean companies.

There's a reason project managers have a tough time with team members who don't pull their weight. It's because their time management skills vary so much that it makes the task of hitting deadlines difficult. This speech was given to the Project Management Institute's Dr. Bird Chapter in Kingston Jamaica. It describes the journey undertaken by the protagonist in the book "Bill's Im-Perfect Time Management Adventure." At a certain part of the story, he must find a way to improve the skills of his team-members so that they can fulfill their mandate, and also avoid being laid off due to low productivity. He's forced to take some risks to realize this goal that brings him into direct confrontation with company policies and an employee who wants to see him fail. http://perfect.mytimedesign.com
