Chances are you arrived here by trying to go to MikeVardy.com. In the interest of simplifying things, I’ve forwarded that site to this page as I was using that site primarily to let people know what I’m up to these days. After all, I can do that here instead and save myself time, attention, and energy…right?
WHAT I AM DOING NOW
LAST UPDATED: August 7, 2017
I created this page to help me allocate the right amount of time and energy to what I need and want to do. I will update this page regularly as I fine-tune its mandate. I’m striving for better harmony in my life and taking on too much puts the focus I need to work on the above in jeopardy.
I’m also focusing on deep work (as described by my friend Cal Newport) going forward, which lines up well with my personal productivity philosophy. I’ll be writing more about this here at Productivityist and Medium.
MY DAILY THEMES
Here are my Daily Themes. Every day has one so that it triggers my overarching focus for that particular day of the week. My Daily Themes have been defined as follows since May 2017:
- SUNDAY: Planning Day
- MONDAY: Coaching Day
- TUESDAY: Administrative Day
- WEDNESDAY: Audio/Video Day
- THURSDAY: Training Day
- FRIDAY: Deep Work Day
- SATURDAY: Family Day
(Note: That doesn’t mean I only do things related to that theme on that day, but those activities/types of work gets my overarching focus. I’m also using horizontal theming for my writing, which I explain in greater detail in The Productivityist Playbook.)
MY MONTHLY THEME: AUGUST
My Monthly Themes act in the same manner as my Daily Themes. My overarching focus for this month is to develop a course that dives deeper into my personal productivity methodology, TimeCrafting. Sure, there are other things I’m working on but my primary goal this month is to outline and prepare this course for production in mid-September.
MY THREE WORDS FOR 2017
For 2017, I’ve chosen Redesign, Rebuild, and Reclaim as My Three Words. You can read more about the practice of choosing My Three Words here.
I have interviews booked through November for The Productivityist Podcast and we have episodes mapped out until early January 2018. So if you’re looking to be on the show it’s going to be a while.
