I always thought that the only way to be more effective was practical tips, tell me how to fix spreadsheets, make more money, fix a toilet. I wasn’t interested in any of the underlying conversations about motivations – that was what therapy was for. That false belief held my growth back for years. It wasn’t until I started focusing on the stories I told myself, dealing with my lack of confidence and other unconscious reasons for working myself to exhaustion that I started to see massive changes in my productivity and my happiness. More than that, I felt in control over the direction of my life, how to make a difference professionally, and saw how to have a personal life while also feeling like a productive member of society. I started the podcast to share stories not just from me, but from the people who taught me and my students and clients along the way.
