Want to boost your productivity and well-being at the same time? You need to know the difference between productive shortcuts and wishful thinking.

We like shortcuts. 

Shortcuts are supposed to use less of our resources than other — more taxing — ways of doing something.

But our brains can’t always tell a productive shortcut from wishful thinking. 

Not knowing the difference between a productive shortcut and wishful thinking will cost you time and resources in the long run.

That’s why in this episode I’m sharing:

  • 5 ways you can tell the difference between a productive shortcut and wishful thinking
  • 3 examples of wishful thinking, so you’ll learn how to see if wishful thinking is running your law practice (it probably is in some areas, so you’ll want to hear these)
  • tips to fuel your focus and well-being

You don’t have to waste time and energy feeling stuck.

This episode will help you get back your focus and well-being.
