Time Management for Busy Activists
(Episode 86)


Tom LimoncelliTom Limoncelli is a time management author and trainer from New Jersey who also happens to be an internationally recognized bisexual activist. In this featured interview, he merges his knowledge in these fields with life, work, and LGBTQ equality movement experiences to share advice on time management for activists. Listen in for tips you can start using right away like “Invest 5,” “The Small Batch Principle,” and “Time Boxing” to get more done and to achieve better focus so there is less to do. Tom’s books include Vol 1: The Practice of System and Network Administration, Vol 2: The Practice of Cloud System Administration, and Time Management for System Administrators. He is also the humorist behind the wonderful Leftscape “sponsors” featured in recent episodes.


Co-hosts Wendy SheridanRobin Renée, and Mary McGinley are happy to be back to The Leftscape after summer break. They begin the show with 3 Random Facts, this time involving employers and your COVID-19 status, a cool study on the acoustics of ancient Stonehenge, and the color of cats (A Geekscape segment on cats facts appears to be forthcoming.). They discuss a few lighter items from the firehose that is the news: the ill-fated boat parade, Novak Djokovic’s ill-fated U.S. Open moment, and Bi Visibility Month. There is one essential news item/reminder: the upcoming U.S. presidential election on November 3rd and the importance of making sure you’re registered and have a solid plan to vote. In the Why Is This Awesome? segment, Wendy talks about the historical drama, Mrs. America, its telling of the 1970s feminist movement for adoption of the ERA, and its conservative opposition. Spoilers abound.
