Big thank you to the podcast partners for making this episode possible
Are you a young professional that struggles with creative productivity systems that will lead you to a more fulfilling career? This week’s conversation with Matthew has been one of my favorites. He is very knowledgeable about how to create those productivity systems (he even has a course on it) as well as how we should approach setting our goals. In this episode, we discuss the value of creating a system that works for you as well as some of the biggest mistakes he has seen young professionals make in their careers.
I personally sometimes struggle to have a good day at work in terms of getting into the “flow” state. We have so many distraction around us, especially if you are working from home. Matthew has some great insight on how to minimize distractions, finding your biological prime time, and doing the right things at the right time.
