Can you relate to the feeling of being overwhelmed, with more commitments at work and home than you have time to handle? Many project managers tell me that's a rather normal existence for them. Elizabeth Grace Saunders calls that being time impoverished. We are spending more than we've earned. It's part of her analogy in her new book How to Invest Your Time Like Money
Most people who know me would say I'm generally a happy guy--rather optimistic by nature. By I've always been a bit skeptical about books on the subject of happiness. My concern is that they would be filled with shallow platitudes, assuming that the ultimate goal for ourselves is self-focused pleasure.
As part of our ongoing experimentation here at the People and Projects Podcast, we're going to be conducting some Periscopes during the month of October 2015. Each Friday, starting October 9, 2015, for 4 Friday's, I'll be broadcasting a periscope from 12:15pm Central in the US (GMT-5). If you haven't downloaded the app, please do so and then join me for these brief, 15-minute discussions. You can find my Periscope home page at https://www.Periscope.tv/andy_kaufman. I would love to have the opportunity to connect with you in this way so join me in October!

Our guest for this episode is Gretchen Rubin, who suggests that developing effective habits is a key responsibility for those who want to build a successful tomorrow.
