If you’re listening to this podcast, we’re going to bet that you’ve had some sort of productivity challenge in your life. Maybe you found yourself repeating the same negative habits. Maybe you haven’t adapted as well to a new situation than you’d like, or maybe distractions get the better of you and you get to the end of the day and don’t feel like you’ve accomplished anything.
Well, even though we host a podcast called The Productivity Show, we’ve been there too. In this episode, we’re going to share 4 productivity challenges we’ve had over the years, and what we did to overcome them.
Even though your challenges may be different, we think you’ll pick up some ideas that will help you breakthrough.
