  • How to Focus While Fear, News and Social Media Is Dominating Your Life (TPS296)

Recently, we did a survey of the Asian Efficiency audience and did a check-in: we asked what kind of impact the global pandemic we’re going through is having.

As we suspected, a *lot* of us are struggling. Even if you and your family are healthy, and even if you’re used to working from home, there’s a lot of change going on right now, and change can be extremely disruptive.

The good news is that it is possible to focus on your important priorities *and* be informed. In fact, we think that ability is going to be a competitive advantage in the future.

In this episode, we’re going to give you 5 strategies to give you that advantage.
