If you’ve been listening to this show for a while, you know I’m not a huge fan of productivity hacks and time saving tips. I think they can definitely serve a purpose in helping us streamline our lives, but I also think often those kinds of things lead to a more frantic lifestyle and can be a distraction from determining what we’re really trying to accomplish. In this episode I chat with Lisa Zarwtony about the underlying purpose of productivity, and I just love her inspiring take on a very common topic.
