Podcast Transcript

Laura Vanderkam

My guest for this week’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is Laura Vanderkam. She is the author of several time-management and productivity books, including the one we discuss in this interview, Off the Clock: Feel Less Busy While Getting More Done.

Vanderkam is the author of several other time-management and productivity books, including I Know How She Does It, What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, and 168 Hours.

Her work has appeared in publications including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and Fortune. She is also the co-host, with Sarah Hart-Unger, of the podcast Best of Both Worlds.

Questions I ask Laura Vanderkam:

  • What are some of the biggest time-drain patterns?
  • Is there a place for procrastination?
  • How much does multitasking cost us?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • Why there is so much stress around getting a lot done
  • Why people are more productive during some times of the day compared to others
  • Whether or not you should track your time
