Right before recording, Drew took a look at his Mac’s desktop. This prompted some discussion. Also, a home automation talk. Joe’s not a fan.

Joe dropped an atom bomb on his first goal. But what did he replace it with? And why make a big change this late in the game? But wait, how did he examine this new idea and get this far with it so quickly?

It’s new iPhone season and Joe and Drew both found themselves upgrading to the X. So, what would a technology podcast be without a discussion about home screens?

Is it possible that attempting to break a thing can make it genuinely stronger? Also, Mike is back on OmniFocus. Who knew?

Joe continues delving into the world of podcasting equipment, Drew continues to delve into the world of paper. More conversation on switching from digital to analog tools, and the many uses of whiteboards.

This was a really fun show I did with Matt Ward and Dan Candell over on the Square Peg Round Hole Podcast. We get to talk about building online communities (in my case Productivity Guild) and how those compare to FaceBook communities. Ultimately, treat your community like a close friend.

Justin DiRose joins Joe and Josh to talk about goals. But they also touch on the difficult topic of fear and how that prevents us from moving forward on our dreams.

Joe gets a new podcasting setup. Drew talks about his latest experience working with pen and paper. A book sparks a conversation around the future of reading, note-keeping, and the often-discussed subject of input.

Theoretical Accountability is now rebranded to The Productivity Guild Podcast. At the same time, Josh is now losing weight. And Joe is potentially staying solo.

This week Drew and I go into some more depth about paper and why it is becoming a go-to tool for me. Yes, I’m addicted.

Josh gets fancy with his shaving. He’s also removing peanut butter. Joe likes video calls. Even as a millennial, he prefers the face-to-face meetings. Weird. Oh, and Joe played with OmniPlan.

It’s time to tackle our latest textbook. It was a listener recommendation and has a lot to talk about. So we’re glad this episode didn’t end up being 5 hours long.

Joe is fighting with Office 365. Josh is carrying over goals. And Theoretical Accountability is making some big changes.

It’s time to be honest and see what Josh and Joe accomplished (or failed to accomplish) over the last 12 weeks. The results are mostly dumpster fires with occasional kittens sprinkled on top.

Drew went on a cruise, and worked at sea. Joe did NOT enjoy the redesign of a certain productivity app. The two share computer horror stories (though one of them has frustratingly never had any real problems), and Joe reveals a major new ‘experiment’.

Josh is making last minute changes. Joe has a theory on goal-setting. And season two isn’t looking good as we hit the home stretch.

Mike has a bone to pick with Joe on this one. Let’s just say this was a very fun, passionate conversation about a book that turned out to be much different than expected.

Drew thinks “content” is a dirty word. Joe thinks giving two hours every week to pondering questions seems like a whole lot of time. Also, more conversation on space for silence.

Josh is now a sitter. Joe got ripped off. And that means this episode goes into legal conversation and the woes of doing freelance work online.

Let’s just say Josh gets fired up this round. Thus, an explicit rating is required. In the end, we all need to learn how to work together on teams. Oh! And Josh invented a new rating.

This week Mike and Joe talk about money. And they talk about thinking about attracting money. We know. Complicated. But it rates well.

Bread followup! Ulysses. Workflows, Launch Center Pro, URL schemes, and the very different ways that Drew and Joe view these tools.

Joe sabotaged Josh’s weight loss goal. He had to do something since he had dumpster fires and didn’t want to be alone in the fire.

Joe has lost all the good words. Josh is making a derivative of bacon. And goals were mentioned in here somewhere. Which means this is likely the backwards show.

Josh had a rough first recording. So they re-recorded this week’s episode in person. So the audio is a bit raw. Ignore it. Focus on the dumpster fires instead.
