Have you ever said, ”How is it Christmas already?” Or “How is that kid I babysat already in college?”
Part of living a great life is living a life that you remember. We can all get sucked into the grind of day-to-day life causing us to watch the weeks slip by. Our guest today gives us tips to actually create a life we remember. She helps people spend more time on things that matter and less time on things that don’t.
Today we’re speaking with Laura Vanderkam who is the author of several time management and productivity books, including Off the Clock, I Know How She Does It, What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, and 168 Hours. Her work has appeared in publications including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and Fortune. She is the co-host, with Sarah Hart-Unger, of the podcast Best of Both Worlds. She lives outside Philadelphia with her husband and four children, and blogs at LauraVanderkam.com.
She also spoke at Ted Women, which is how I found her work. And in full disclosure, I’m truly a big fan of Laura’s work and her books and I was a little overzealous in this interview. I may have talked a little too much and didn’t let Jordan into the discussion at all. I’m still learning how this whole podcasting thing works.
Get ready to start living a life that you actually remember as Laura breaks down the small actions we can all take today to make some space in our hectic schedules, and stop feeling so busy.
