Ep038: A Productive 2019 – Persistence

Welcome to episode 38, where we look at another of our principles of Productivity. This time, our attention turns to the role of Persistence – keeping going when we’re faced with discomfort, challenges and setbacks.

It’s another episode without Pilar, but I’m delighted to be joined by Paul Smith from WiseAmigo. Paul is a fellow psychologist and the founder of an app and system to support personalised development planning and tracking.
