Rank #2: Personal Mission Statements, moving to Outlook web, and personal retrospectives

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode of ProdCast is brought to you by D365UG.

In today's episode we revisit our moves to Outlook Web in last episode. One month in, what is working well, and what do we miss?

We also revisit our ongoing discussion of personal mission statements--what does Joel mean when he says his goal is to do amazing work, and how do mission statements help you determine what not to do.

Have you ever had a time when you are super busy? When you find yourself in that state, it's important to do a personal retrospective--how did I get myself here, what was my part in it, and what am I going to do differently in the future to avoid this happening again?

Got any feedback about how you do your personal mission statement? Do  you do personal retrospectives? Let us know by posting a comment on the blog or email us at voice@crm.audio.

Rank #7: ProdCast 44: Habit stacking and predefined outcomes

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode of ProdCast is brought to you by mscrm-addons.com.

Sometimes input from others is necessary before you can complete a task, and if those people aren’t responsive, it can become a roadblock to your productivity. In today’s episode, we discuss how you can get more control over these tasks by strategically predefining outcomes. Make the default action the result you want.

Joel shares an Outlook productivity tip about quickly archiving emails, and we also discuss habit stacking–grouping things you have to do with things you like to do to motivate yourself to do the things that you need (but don’t want) to do.
