    How to Reclaim Your Time - GM65

    How to Reclaim Your Time - GM65

    Ever imagine how you look and then see a picture which jars you back into reality? How we spend our time - or think we're spending it - often works the same way: our perception can be way off from reality. In this episode of Grey Matters, Steve shares how you can honestly learn how you're spending or misspending your time and, more importantly, how to get it back!
    We live in an age of constant distractions. Think about all of the things vying for your attention: website tabs, notifications on your computer, notifications and calls on your smartphone, notifications on your wearables, deliveries, loved ones. And we haven't even mentioned that all of this can be aggravated by everyone being home more due to lockdowns and quarantines! Today it's tougher than ever before to stay focused and get in our flow, which is when we can accomplish the best work. 
    That's one thing Steve wants to help you with this week as he challenges you to an exercise that will show you where your time is going each day. Whether your goal is to get more work done or better work done - or a combination of both - this episode will get you on the road to reclaimed time and productivity.

Quality Podcast

Always enjoy these productions. Not interested as a business, something to keep me relevant and up to date.

All should have a listen or two?

I’m deeply touched 👍🏼

Have fun storm’n the castle. And never mind having flavours that some people don’t like. Roots are more valuable than leaves.

I have enjoyed every opportunity I’ve had to listen to Steve Dotto. His style is perfectly his and genuinely refreshing.
