The Unconventional Habits of Highly Productive People

Podcast cover
Read more

How do they actually get so much done in a day? We've all had this thought run through our minds before. The person in question tackles a bunch of projects at work, spends time with family, nurtures their personal relationships, and still finds time to train for a marathon. What's their secret? You convince yourself that they simply don't sleep. Or maybe they've escaped the space-time continuum. Or maybe, they just have something you don't. Turns out, they are doing something different -- but it's something you can learn to do, too. Charles Duhigg, a Pulitzer-winning journalist for The New York Times and author of "The Power of Habit," has spent years trying to figure out what makes some people and teams more productive than others. Last week, Charles released his findings in a book titled "Smarter Faster Better." In this episode, Charles shares some of his findings on how to build a happier and more productive team, career, and life.

Why a Side Hustle Shouldn't Actually Take That Much Hustle

Podcast cover

Projects fail. Side-projects fail even more. A lot more, in fact. But every once in awhile, a project comes along that shatters expectations (and maybe even a Google Sheet in the process). Yet all too often, we’re left wondering the same question: Why

Mikael Cho, the CEO and founder of Unsplash, knows the answers to this question. And why shouldn’t he? Unsplash was once a side project itself. In today’s episode, Mikael explains which signs to keep a sharp eye on when you’re exploring side projects, and how he transitioned his own into the company it is today.

If you work in some kind of office, you’ve probably spent a good amount of your time in group brainstorms. Sometimes they work, but often you’re left with a ton of really great ideas -- and no action.

Jake Knapp is probably the most vocal critic of the group brainstorm. He’s the creator of GV's (Google Ventures) sprint process, and the author of “Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days” in which he lays out a five-day alternative to group brainstorms that actually has results. In this episode, he tells us how he lost faith in brainstorming, what you can learn from Slack’s sprint process, and how you can even apply the idea to your personal life.

Podcast cover

Will Dean is the founder and CEO of Tough Mudder. Dean came up with the idea for Tough Mudder while at Harvard Business School and at the time, everyone thought he was crazy. With only $8,000 to spend on marketing, Dean hoped to get 500 people at their first event. Instead, 5,000 people showed up and there was no looking back from there. Today, Tough Mudder holds 70 events worldwide, has grown to over $75M in revenue, raised millions for the Wounded Warrior Project and had over 5,000 people tattoo the company’s logo on their body(!) Dean has helped build a brand that people truly love, and he joins HubSpot CMO Mike Volpe on this episode of the Growth Show to share the story behind the company’s growth. Dean talks about how much time he spends thinking about the competition, why great culture isn’t determined by free beer, and his advice for hiring.
