“Finding real happiness and satisfaction in your career and at home can seem like a such a challenge sometimes, everything moves so fast and it’s all you can do to keep up with life. Many times that leaves us seeking advice from books, seminars, coaching and videos about how to balance your busy schedule and find your stride.
“The problem with a lot of the advice you’ll hear about how to work smarter, go farther, and live happier, is that it doesn’t actually work. It sounds like it should work, and it’s given with only the best intentions – but it’s based on faulty intuitions and perceptions, rather than hard data.
