In this mini-episode, I answer audio questions from listeners asking for advice about how best to tune-up their productivity and work habits in a moment of increased distraction and disruption.

I also officially announce my new Time-Block Planner! Available for pre-order everyone you buy books. Find out more about the Time Block Academy event I'm holding for those who pre-order at calnewport.com/blog.

You can submit your own audio questions at speakpipe.com/calnewport.

 * Trello versus Workflowy for task management. [9:08]
 * Integrating life admin into your work day. [12:54]
 * Finding time for deliberate practice in an unpredictable work day. [18:46]
