  1. The Hustle & Flowchart Podcast: How A Simple New Habit Will Change Your Life And Reduce Your Stress - David Allen

    One simple question took a 9-year-old boy from wanting to be President of the United States to a completely different path of enlightening millions. Thankfully, David Allen took that question to heart and the Getting Things Done (GTD) method was allowed to be born. After years of field research on productivity, David scored a position with his own productivity mentor, Dean, by handing over a referral to his newfound teacher. Partnering up to experience Dean’s “personal information management” system first hand gave David all the inspiration he needed to create GTD. In this episode, special guest host Marx Acosta Rubio joins in to uncover David’s five-step GTD method, advice on discovering your true life’s purpose, definition of productivity, and beliefs about the link between productivity and spiritual discovery.

    Is the secret to success best discovered by taking a nap? These are the types of people most attracted to the GTD method David’s definition of productivity is simple-achieving the desired result Once you can get  to the “why” of the goals you believe you want to achieve, surprising shifts to your goals themselves can happen Does productivity actually lead to spiritual enlightenment? Once you accept you are a creator, you can get on with the process of intuitive prioritizing Of the five steps in the GTD method, this is the one new adopters tend to struggle with more often If you’re struggling with adopting GTD, the answer is usually in your list (or lack thereof) David’s suggestion on the best tool to create your GTD lists The question that shifted David’s trajectory from the presidency What exactly is a scuzz factor?

  2. 229: Rapidfire 67 - ShopTalk

    We’re answering your questions right after Dave finishes grinding his gears about SaaS. Programming after 30? Development environment possibilities? Getting content from clients? rems vs ems? Angular vs React metaphors?

    Q & A

    8:03 Foundation is specifically built with Sass, and heavily leverages imports for each feature. Basically, if you don’t need the feature it is up to the developer to not include it.

    19:00 I’m starting to finally understand the concepts of Angular and React. However, I’m struggling to understand when I would reach for one over the other. Could you give me an example of a use case for Angular and a use case for React?

    28:30 What’s the deal with rem vs. em?

    38:57 I wondered if you’d ever considered doing a show about ‘older’ people making the jump into tech. By older I mean 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond, as I’m aware that in tech 30+ is often considered old, which I find hilarious!

    49:00 Any tips on process for getting content from clients? We’ve tried stuff like dropbox folders, master word docs, etc. Getting it all wrangled into a clear deliverable from them feels harder than it should be.

    54:50 I thought a very cool thing about Wes Bos’ React course (which was great) was the first video on getting your dev environment set up. I’d love to hear if you guys have locked into a workflow to solve this particular issue, or just generally if there are parts of your workflow that you think are cool and are worth sharing.
