How do you prioritize all the things? Jenna Worthen went in deep to research and create a new beautiful efficiency system.
Jenna's main gig is political and nonprofit fundraising and consulting. She searched high and low for a simple, striking, efficiency tool that would work for her clients and most importantly for her. A confessed, recovering work-a-holic Jenna has a lot of irons in the fire and needed a way to manage inflow, priorities and outflow. Voila, her new company and creation: The Taskkeeper.
In this episode Jenna takes us on the ride from deciding to launch a new company, hitting potholes and finally crossing to the other side with The Taskkeeper steno line and a manifesto for "beautiful efficiency."
This episode is exactly what you need if you can see a solution that should exist, but doesn't. You are on the fence, trying to decide if you create it, or just deal without.
At the end of the episode Jenna drops some deep thoughts on how she doesn't let others dictate her schedule. How she flipped a popular phrase to shape a new identity for her life.
