On this week’s episode of the Work Awesome podcast (the first under new ownership, I might add), we start a new era. A new theme will greet listeners as they tune in, but a familiar voice can still be heard as host.
I continue my journey with this site in my new role as Podcast Prodigy, and every other week the Work Awesome podcast will bring tips, tricks, interviews and more. This week, I had the opportunity to speak with Jason Womack, noted productivity expert and author. Jason is one of the principals at The Womack Company, a company that aims to help those in all walks of business (and in life) “level up” their productivity.
Jason recently inked a book deal with Wiley Publishing, and his first book under its banner, Your Best Just Got Better, will hit bookshelves later in 2011.
Jason and I discussed his latest book, The Promise Doctrine, which he co-wrote with his father Craig Womack, as well as some of the advice he has for those seeking to level up their own work, life and passions. Through such tactics as sending clear and actionable emails to what aspect of The Promise Doctrine that he feels is the most crucial, our discussion covers a wide spectrum that offers both practical and inspirational insights from a man who has many years of experience in the productivity and self-development realm.
Jason has offered one lucky WorkAwesome podcast follower an opportunity to win each item from The Womack Company library. This includes:
- DVD: 15 Tips for Time Management
- Audio CD: 20 Time Saving Tips
- Book: The Promise Doctrine
In order to win, just leave a comment below telling us what well-known productivity expert (and past podcast guest) Jason worked with before forging out on his own. We’ll select the winner at random by May 5th, 2011 at 12 noon PDT and announce the winner here when we post our next podcast episode. You can find out more about Jason

Jason worked for David Allen.
Thanks again for this conversation. Re-listening to it today reminded me of some of the MITs (those Most Important Things) that need care, and feeding, and attention. I look forward to continuing the discussions…
David Allen, who was also on Work Awesome podcast #5!
Nice podcast. Thanks.
David Allen – Jason was a Productivity expert for David’s Allen’s company. Also Jason’s Grandfather Wayne was the 1st major for Novato, CA (where I live). His family still lives in Novato and Wayne rides in the yearly 4th of July Parade if he is not the Grand Marshall..
That was a great interview Jason and Mike. Very inspiring. I was listening to it while (ironically) trying to delay action from completing my own book project.
Back to work now. Now, if we just have a cure for procrastination… 🙂

Thanks to everyone for the kind words and the comments. We’ll draw a name at random this week and let the winner know via email.
Thanks for listening — and reading!
Mr. Womack provided much food for thought. Looking forward to checking out his blog and work. He worked for David Allen in the late 90s. I’m interested in what input he may have had opportunity to give towards
Allen’s 2001 book: GTD TAoSFP.
