I think this has the best discussion about "how" you need to start your realistic time block planning. Face the productivity dragon, accept you may need more time than you are currently allowing for job demands than you may be assigning at present and are then going over the time you want to be working; effectively sacrificing you spare time.

can you make an app/website rather than a time block planner book... like the one similar to toggle but a it bit more flexible

01:01:46 this part about the need for two clashing theories is very interesting! Noticing where this does not apply could help to discourage dogma in so many places.

Another practical episode and I particularly liked the focus on prioritisation and even the radicalisation slot at the end.

There is always loads to think about whenever I listen to Cal. He's so insightful. I'm already reaping personal benefits from putting into practice what I hear so encourage others to listen if you want to boost personal productivity.

Another excellent episode today! The segment on daily vs. weekly planning has given me a lot to consider when it comes to how I plan out my time as I look to boost productivity.
