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:

 -  Clarifying capturing and configuring. [2:09]
 -  Time blocking for teachers. [9:24]
 -  Starting from scratch on a hard professional challenge. [15:20]
 -  Building professional skills as a stay-at-home parent. [25:35]
 -  Bottom up versus top down when reorganizing your life. [32:04]

Thanks to listener Jay Kerstens for the intro music.
