Ep 67 How to get A Day Back from every week of your life this year, or a 1 Day Refund with Donna McGeorge
Have you found yourself asking, where has all the time gone? Or why did I feel so insanely busy last year but not more productive, even when I worked from home and in theory should've had more time to spare? Fortunately, you can get back in control of your time with some intentional strategies and a formula for reclaiming time. That's right, it's time to get your time back and here's how, in the first of a two-part episode.
Donna McGeorge makes work work. She is a productivity coach, best-selling author, trainer, and facilitator. Her focus is on helping individuals, managers, and teams work smarter, build collaborative relationships, and make efficient use of time. She has written 10 productivity books, with The 1 Day Refund published this month.
Quotes from this episode:
"The tendency for all of us is to say, I need more time or I need more space, more capacity. Actually, we've got enough. We just need to be clever about how we use what we've got."
"Decision fatigue... impacts our willpower. And so if I'm trying to make too many decisions about how I'm going to do my world, when it gets to the time of day where I have to jump on the Peloton or go to the gym or whatever I'm choosing to do, it's just that much harder."
"It's much easier just to say here, do this, but in the long-term you're creating a culture of learned helplessness."
