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:

* Time blocking versus calendar planning [6:07]
* Deep work for professional athletes [12:24]
* Capturing non-urgent ideas [21:33] 
* Distracted by rumination [35:09]
* Prioritizing interesting projects [43:17]

Thanks to listener Jay Kerstens for the intro music.
