Do Nothing

Note: the audio on this episode is sub-par, however, we felt the information was too valuable not to release.

Celeste Headlee, award-winning journalist and best-selling author joins us today to discuss her latest book, Do Nothing: How to Break Away from Overworking, Overdoing, and Underliving. Discover why working long hours does not necessarily equal more income, how to distinguish what is worth our time and what isn’t, and how to deal with FOMO (fear of missing out).

    Brilliant interview with Celeste Headlee – thanks for getting this out there. I am going to reference this in an upcoming class – is there any way you have transcripts of these episodes available? I want to ensure the content is accessible. I can run it through a 3rd party if I need to but thought you might have something on hand. Thanks in advance.
