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.

 - Using task boards to plan big projects. [2:49] 
 - Academic Twitter. [8:31]
 - Time block breaks + Workflowy vs Trello. [13:04]
 - Deep work while traveling. [19:46]
 - Setting aside time for big projects. [26:02]

Thanks to listener Jay Kerstens for the intro music.
