Sometimes input from others is necessary before you can complete a task, and if those people aren’t responsive, it can become a roadblock to your productivity. In today’s episode, we discuss how you can get more control over these tasks by strategically predefining outcomes. Make the default action the result you want.

Joel shares an Outlook productivity tip about quickly archiving emails, and we also discuss habit stacking–grouping things you have to do with things you like to do to motivate yourself to do the things that you need (but don’t want) to do.
