A Year of Productivity

Can you imagine experimenting for a year on how to be most productive? Well, Christopher Bailey is doing just that with his ayearofproductivity.com project. Chris contacted me to talk about procrastination. He agreed to make the interview into a podcast, so I got to turn the table on him and interview him about his project as well.
