Great life changing hacks
I could never get that quote ‘you have as many hours in the day as Beyoncé’ out of my head! Everyday I sit back and wonder where the time went (and I hear the same from many others) so love these hacks, both the big changes and the little which have literally changed my life! Highly recommend!
Awesome insight into how some of the best minds work
Super interesting content on the best way to manage time and tasks. I came away with a few tweaks that will hopefully make me more effective than ever before.
Can't wait to see who you interview on the next episode!
MASSIVE Adam Grant fan! Loved this episode, especially the research on how engaging in intrinsically motivating tasks can have a negative flow on effect to terribly boring tasks that are extrinsically motivated. And will definitely check out Adam’s recommended podcasts - some goodies in there :)
