Back in January, we spoke with Jake Knapp about making time for the things we love. In other words, prioritizing.(Way better word than “balance,” don’t you think?)  Jake offered outstanding tips for making sure your days and weeks and years are spent on more of the things that make you happy.

So, do those tips work? Have we been able to prioritize a little more over the past 9 months?

Join us for a fun, helpful, revealing episode in which we share our own progress in how we’re prioritizing our health, our family time, our partners, our friends, our hobbies and passions. our own health and well-being — and where we could be doing better.
