10 Tactics to Better Work-Life Balance (Part 1, FS059)

You beat yourself up when you don’t get enough done in the day. You get frustrated and moody and it clouds your vision, keeps you from doing your best work.

In this episode we dig into a handful of really great (and surprising) ideas about balancing work and life.

Along the way we define 10 specific tactics to actually do this well — to make a bigger dent in your todo list without burning out or building poorly.

We went good and long on this conversation, so we split it into two parts. Enjoy!
