Are You Being Effective or Just Efficient? (ft. Josh Davis, PhD) | Ep. 45

If you've ever wondered whether or not you're committing your time to the right tasks, then this episode is for you. This week, we're joined by author, speaker, and consultant Josh Davis, PhD.

Josh Davis, PhD, is the author of the international bestseller Two Awesome Hours. He is Faculty and Senior Director of Research at the Institute for Personal Leadership, and he teaches "The Art of Public Speaking" at the NLP Center of New York.

I brought him on the show to walk through the differences between efficiency and effectiveness. Some other topics we walk through on the show include: 

  • how to cope with never feeling productive enough
  • the benefit of distraction
  • why efficiency is a terrible metric for humans
  • the importance of momentum vs. magic
  • what are the basic circumstances we can setup to be more productive.

Also, you can keep up with Josh's work and purchase his book at the links below.
