Hey everyone. I hope you’re all well. The past week has been hectic. It’s finals time, which is usually a period of very high stress for me. This year has been different. I feel alright for some reason. I can’t quantify the cause with any precision, but my gut tells me that the productivity skills that I’ve learned in the past months are playing a big part.
Breaking down large tasks like final papers into smaller segments, taking the days one by one, and focusing my attention on the tasks with the highest leverage have made this year’s finals… manageable.
With that said, I’m still a bit strapped for time. Right now, I’m learning more and more that time is our most valuable resource, so I definitely didn’t want to waste anybody’s time by publishing some half-assed blog post.
This week’s blog post is a change of pace. After personally experiencing an increase in productivity and wellbeing with a simultaneous decrease in stress levels and overwhelm, I felt incredibly thankful that I’ve had access to the wealth of information and wisdom that’s available both online and in books. Listed below are the blogs, podcasts, youtube channels, and books that I use most frequently or have helped me the most.
