The world is filled with stress and anxiety, but that doesn’t mean you need to be. It might sound surprising, but the way to true productivity is through.. calm.
Hustling, grinding, and imbalance will happen from time to time, but eventually, we all realize there is more to life and that we are being productive for a reason beyond prioritizing our to-do list.
In this episode, author, speaker, and productivity experimenter Chris Bailey shares how we can calm our minds, and use that ability to lead the life we want.
