(GYSS #98): Get Stuff Done Days & Email Overload Disorder w/ James Norris
“People think they’re productive, and they’re really not.”
James Norris is a social entrepreneur and life-hacker focused on behavior change innovations. He is founder and CEO of Self Spark, a global platform for science-based lifehacking events. He previously co-built 21 other organizations and was a triple major/quadruple minor at The University of Texas at Austin. He believes in living with intention and has experienced 2,050 “firsts” in life.
I wanted to get James back on the show because he’s not just a “productivity guy.” James takes a data-driven approach to lifehacking, which I find incredibly unique and useful. Everything he does (and recommends) is backed by personal experience and data, which is very uncommon in the self-help world. In this episode, we discuss what James has been up to over the past two years, how to constructs an environment that increases your productivity, and James explains Email Overload Disorder (EOD), among other things.
