Notable Excerpt: “[Do] an audit of your life across all the different categories. So career and job is one of them, but also your money, volunteering, your side-hustles, your family or the institutions you’re part of, look at all your life and first start rating it by how much time are you spending on these categories and then whether you’re having a positive-neutral-negative effect.”
