    How to have the energy, with Colette Heneghan

    How to have the energy, with Colette Heneghan

    In the wake of the re-release of Graham and Colette’s book on nutrition for better, more sustained productivity, the two authors discuss how the project came to be.

    > I was making bad choices on a regular basis

    Colette describes how her busy international career left no room for her to consider diet, and sapped her energy leaving her saying no to things she otherwise would have wanted to say yes to. This realisation led her to retrain as a nutritionist, leaving her former career behind.

    > The title was broken

    Graham describes how the previous incarnation of the book was difficult to position within the market, despite readers finding it to be a “hidden gem”.

    > Choose how you want to feel

    The first point in the book’s nine-point plan empowers us to make choices as to what we eat and drink.

    > Eat the rainbow

    By having a broader range of colours on our plate, we eat a broader range of nutrients, which is a factor that will improve our dietary health, so Colette describes how “each colour has different gifts to give us”.

    Graham Allcott is the founder of time management training company Think Productive.

Great podcast

Great honest authentic podcast discussing productivity in an honest manner

Informal and relatable

Graham has managed to ask deep, insightful questions without making the podcast too heavy to listen to. You're able to get on the same level as the people he's chatting with and realise not everybody has figured it out yet!

This might be the greatest podcast of all time.

If you like productivity chat but you want it to sound a bit more real, then this is for you.
