Download episode 137

Aspire to be Time Wealthy

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

PPP 136 | What Science Says About the Happy Project Manager, with Michelle Gielen

The Happy Project Manager

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.

Thankfully, that bias didn't keep me from agreeing to read Michelle Gielan's new book Broadcasting Happiness: The Science of Igniting and Sustaining Positive Change.

Habits for Project Managers

Could it be that the habits you develop today determine the life you live tomorrow? As project managers, we make endless choices throughout the day--how to use our time, how to interact with stakeholders, how to solve a problem. 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.

Gretchen is the author of a new book entitled Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives.
