We talk a lot about productivity systems, but they aren’t always as simple as they should be — should you be strict and results-focused, or flexible enough to follow inspiration?

If you decide the latter is the best answer for you, you may eventually find yourself neglecting a few of your more un-inspirational subjects.

Today, we’ll be talking about a few ways to meet this challenge, and:

  • How to email your professors
  • How to ask for a letter of recommendation

Enjoy!

And, as always, you can get your own questions answered on the show by asking them in the College Info Geek Community, or by tweeting me.
