Click here to listen on Apple Podcasts.

Topics We Explored:

  • Why focusing on energy-based productivity may give you more traction than focusing on traditional time-based productivity
  • Why it’s important to figure out what times of the day you are the most productive, and then have the courage to set boundaries to work during those times
  • How you can use your own unique “triggers” to hold you accountable to completing certain tasks
  • Why being productive can often mean getting fewer things done more completely, rather than rushing through everything just to get it done

“If you define your days and funnel your focus, then you can start to make every moment matter more and more.” — Mike Vardy
