Measured but not boring

I really enjoy how David and Mike talk about Focus and productivity in a way that makes it a life integration as opposed to life hacks and quick fixes. True change and improvement happens over time and it’s nice to listen to a podcast based on that central idea.

A great show with two great hosts.

Always informative!

Slow and deliberate in a noisy world...

This show is a slow, quiet, and thoughtful look at productivity. There’s no glitz and hype here. Simple conversions that slow the listener down enough to actually get you thinking. Keep up the great work guys!
