Listen to News and Me On-The-Go

rivet-thelistproducer-ad-300x250_NEWAfter the departure of Umano, I’ve been listening to a lot of audio books. It’s been a good chance to catch up on everything I’ve been meaning to read. However I feel there is still a void where Umano used to be.  Remember Umano — it was the platform where you could get your news read to you by professionals.  I even read these blog posts on Umano and shared my stuff in a whole new way.  I was bummed when they closed down.  

Until I discover Rivet. Like Umano, Rivet reads to you all the latest news, over a range of different categories. With a mix of local, national, and world news. You can get all the latest on:

  • Breaking News
  • Technology
  • Science
  • Arts & Entertainment
  • Sports
  • Business
  • Lifestyle
  • Law, Order & Disorder
  • Government & Politics
  • Weather & Traffic

Rivet also remembers what you like to listen to and curates a playlist for you.

Plus if you’ve been missing the audio content I uploaded to Umano – then you’ll definitely want to download Rivet. I’m doing a weekly podcast show for them where I talk about a different productivity topic each week.

Click this link and download the app for iOS or Android.  Can’t wait to hear what you think of this new platform.  I’m excited to be on board and bring you a new and easy way to get your news…and productivity tips too!

Get More Organized Now with Harvesting Happiness

hhtr_banner_orange I was kindly invited on as a guest to the Harvesting Happiness Show.  We talked about my book, Listful Thinking and how you can use lists to live a happy life.

The show also featured Daniel Levitin who talks about the science behind getting organized.

He touched on a few scientific reasons why multitasking is bad for you, which made me so happy to hear as multitasking is such a pet peeve of mine. But unfortunately it’s such a classic pitfall that so many people fall down!

The interview is embedded below, but you can also click here to listen to it. It’s 58 minutes long, so I would recommend breaking it up and listening in chunks. Or it could be good if you have a long drive. If you want to skip to my part I start around the 31 minute mark. Enjoy!

Listful Thinking Wisdom on the Inspired Conversations Podcast

54602Recently I chatted with Amy on Inspired Conversations with Amy Schuber. Amy’s show is dedicated to interviewing today’s most influential thought leaders, and people she believes are making a difference through their impactful work.

So I was very glad to be invited onto her show. We talked about my book, Listful Thinking, and I gave her some advice on how to make lists work for any situation. She told me a little bit about her own lists, and how she likes to categorize them.

I also share some of my top tips like always writing a list the night before and the importance of finding your own productivity style. It’s a half -hour podcast so it’s perfect to listen to on your commute!

Stop Reading, Start Listening to Podcasts

200364775-002If you follow this blog you probably know how much I’m loving podcasts these days. It’s such an easy way to get smarter! Podcasts are just so convenient for my commute as I spend most of my time walking, making it difficult to read. Podcasts are a great way to learn on the go and make the most of your limited free time. I listen to a bunch of different ones on my 20-minute commute and it always makes my morning more exciting. Ever since I listened to Serial — I’ve been seriously hooked.

Here is a list of my favorite podcasts:

Happier with Gretchen Rubin – I’m always inspired by Gretchen and she’s a list maker too so you know how I feel about that!  She’s the author of The Happiness Project and the soon to be released book, Better Than Before.  This happiness guru always seems to have the right answers and the best ways to love your life. This podcast is new and Gretchen and her sister host it together.  It’s worth a listen for sure. Read more

Why Did I Start This Blog? (And other Listful Questions)

I’m excited to share the first of what will hopefully be many interviews about my upcoming book, Listful Thinking.  I’m always grateful for an opportunity to talk about my love of lists with other people and help them become more productive. Recently I was invited on Blog Talk Radio’s Conversations Live to discuss what inspired me to start this blog and how to use lists at home specifically to get the most out of your day!

Here’s the interview!  I hope you’ll take a listen:
