In our podcast episode today, Diana and I discuss productivity and how to make the best use of your research time. We discuss various ideas including the pomodoro technique, using Google Keep, a 30×30 challenge for daily research in small increments of time, and using a time journal to notice what you spend time on and eliminate time thieves.
