Inside This Episode
- Motivational Quote
- Must Read Book
- Productivity Tool/Tip
- Progress is better than perfection. Stop waiting for perfection, just ship it.
- Eyes on your own paper. Comparing yourself is a huge time suck and does nothing for your psyche.
- Put on your own air mask first. Just like an emergency on an airplane, you need to take care of yourself first. Which means doing your work, not getting to sucked into situations where you are “helping” and totally unfocused. Your productivity will suffer if you put everyone ahead of yourself. (And a good reminder for moms about self-care too.)
