Episode 008: How to Organise Your Time Effectively with Michael Johnston
This week we're super excited to be chatting about how to be productive and stay motivated with the founder of the Zelo Journal, Michael Johnston. Instead of promoting one particular method that will never be one-size-fits-all (a pet hate of Ellie's, and why she'll sadly never be part of the #BuJo crew), we explored how to find your own way of working and how to use it effectively. We cover SMART goals (ya clever clogs), prioritising, habit tracking, decision fatigue, and social media - with our number one takeaway the end for sorting your shit out.
