My goal is to help people do more of their stuff...as opposed to someone else's. I'm hoping I can do that in this community through discussions and more.
I think having the right mix of people in here and sticking to the guidelines would be a huge help. (And I know I had my share of posts shared via Productivityist that I placed in the old community with little else to add - I'll be more thoughtful here now that I've decided to be more intentional with social media.)
Let's share ideas and processes here - and let's help each other get more productive!
So...what do you do when faced with that problem?
When I manage to realize it's happening, I try to go to ground. What that means for me is sitting down and doing a mind dump, then making sure those things that are most on my mind are prominent in my task management system. Not easy, but worth it, every time!

I am a husband, father, writer, podcaster, speaker, and "productivityist".
In addition to writing for my personal weblog, Productivityist.com, I continue to contribute guest articles to several blogs on the topic of productivity, including The Huffington Post, GTD Times, and SUCCESS Magazine.
Prior to returning to full-time freelancing, I served as the Managing Editor at Lifehack, one of the top productivity blogs on the web. I've also been an editor at technology news site, The Next Web, and enjoyed a year-long stint as editor of the work-life balance blog, WorkAwesome.
I am also the author of "The Front Nine: How to Start the Year You Want Anytime You Want" from Diversion Books.
Along with my written work, I've given talks on productivity and technology, as well as several featured keynotes and workshops related to time, project and goal management. As a podcaster, I have created, produced and hosted several over the years. I currently co-host Mikes on Mics with Michael Schechter, a podcast that is part of the popular 5by5 network.
I live in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada with my amazing wife, daughter, and son.
