If you’re just starting out in your productivity journey, you are in a GREAT situation. You can optimize right away, and you can learn from what has worked for others and, where it makes sense, apply it to yourself. It’s a gift that will pay off for years to come.
However, maybe you’ve been working for a while. What lessons do you WISH you had learned years ago? If you had a time machine, what changes would you make to make you more productive? And what’s stopping you from making them right now? It’s never too late.
In this episode, Brooks, Marmel, and myself share the productivity lessons WE would implement if we were just starting over — what we wish we knew back then, and what is helping us now.
Even just asking yourself this question will be a powerful exercise, so benefit from our lessons learned.
