Rank #1: 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.
