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.

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

Here are the topics we cover: 


Opening: When did productivity become personal? (My new article for The New Yorker.)

* Becoming so good they can't ignore you as a teacher [19:07]
* Finding focused after receiving emotional emails [30:18]
* Scheduling deep work amidst unpredictable childcare [43:19]
* Fitting a large amount of leisure into a small amount of free time [52:19]


Thanks to listener Jay Kerstens for the intro music.
