      Productivity is a big topic these days out on the interwebs and book stores. Being that I’m self employed, train about 15 hours a week, write for 303triathlon.com (and soon will contribute some to 303cycling.com), and am a captain for a Bike MS team, it’s definitely important that I make the most of my time. But I want to do it in such a way that I don’t feel too stressed out about everything I need to get done.
