Welcome to The Productivity Show, a podcast by Asian Efficiency to help you maximize your productivity so you can get everything done without having to sacrifice your health, family, and things that matter to you. We’ve helped tens of thousands of people save time, be happier, and become more productive.
You probably have heard of the saying “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”. While most of us agree with that idea, very few people put that into practice. In this episode, we want to help you take this idea and consciously make an effort who you spend time with. We’ll discuss how to identify which people you should spend more time with AND which people you need to ditch. As always, you can expect it to be simple and actionable.
