What does the guy who lives and breathes productivity do to adapt focus when a pandemic hits? You're about to find out, and possibly feel better about the challenges and solutions you've experienced as the world turned topsy-turvy.
In this episode of the Grey Matters podcast, Steve welcomes Mike Vardy, founder of Productivityist and author of The Front Nine: How to Start the Year You Want Anytime You Want, The Productivityist Playbook, and TimeCrafting: A Better Way to Get the Right Things Done (coming soon!).
The pandemic caused a seismic shift in all of our lives, as well as a shift in what has worked for us focus our time on being productive. Steve and Mike chat about misconceptions about how we all assumed we could focus more, how we all thought we'd spend our time, and how we plan to focus in the future.
