Workflowing #90: Creating Your Own System with Thanh Pham

October 18, 2013 at 6:00AM • 48 minutes

"The Mikes" are joined by Thanh Pham from Asian Efficiency. They discuss how you can go about finding a workflow that fits your personality. Thanh has always been system minded and in this episode he shares how those who may not take to productivity quite as naturally can get started and continue to build a system that fits their personality. Schechter and Vardy also ask Thanh how he manages to maintain his personal system while also determining the best ways to collaborate with his teammates (who may prefer different systems) at Asian Efficiency.

Episode Fun Fact: Schechter had a head cold and took a fair amount of DayQuil before recording.
