“Downtime is not unproductive. What is unproductive is spending your downtime in ways that are not particularly meaningful or enjoyable to you”

In today’s episode, we welcome on Laura Vanderkam. Laura is an author who has written some excellent books and her newest release is one I loved called Off The Clock, a book all about how we can better manage our time. It’s one of those books I was more than happy to read twice as I took so much away from it and in this interview, we get into where Laura’s fascination about TM comes from, how she sets up and plans her day & week, what she would recommend to someone who is just starting to think about better managing their time and much more.
