Colin Marshall talks to Merlin Mann, thinker, writer, and speaker on time, attention, and creative work. Following up on his June 2009 visit, he’s back on the show to talk about a great many things, not least his new podcast Back to Work with Dan Benjamin, a program about productivity, communication, barriers, constraints, tools — and, nearly always, fear. The conversation also ventures into other, unusually personal topics, including dealing with entrepreneurs, trying not to hate the internet, and having one hundred dollars in the bank.

Merlin Mann shared his thoughts on creativity and producing creative work in a very popular talk at last year’s MaxFunCon.
Maybe you couldn’t make it in 2009. Well, luckily enough for you, Merlin will be joining us again this year. In anticipation of next week’s podcast, in which Jesse will be talking to him about his upcoming book, we’re sharing the advice he gave at MaxFunCon 2009.
Merlin is great at breaking down the process of making art, or writing, or however you choose to be awesome and helping you think clearly about how you can stop stalling and just get started. So what are you waiting for?
