By 14/04/2017April 18th, 2017No Comments

We spend more than 50% of our waking lives working and with the increasing digitisation of out working lives, it’s easy to see that the way we work is changing rapidly. In this episode, I speak with the best-selling author and entrepreneur David Kadavy. David is the author of Design for Hackers and he is also the host of the Love Your Work podcast.

In a former life David was a product designer in Silicon Valley but now focuses on writing. Previously, David worked with behavioural scientist Dan Ariely to reinvent Google Calendar, and he now resides in MedellĂ­n, Colombia.

David focuses his work on building habits that support Deep Work and the interrelationship between technological progress and human experience.

  • Creative productivity is not about time management, it’s about mind management
  • How ‘motivational judo’ will help get you through the monotonous parts of work
