Welcome to the first episode in the GenY Success Learning Series! This month, we’re tackling all things productivity. In this episode, we talk about one of the most common questions we receive — why is it so hard to focus on just one thing? We break down the difference between productivity and efficiency, how to use The 80/20 Rule to maximize your efficiency, and why you should learn to “trust your calendar” to develop a daily system for working more efficiently.
