This begs the question – is it possible to be successful as a scientist and work 40 hours a week? Or even less? Actually have a life outside of science?
The answer is YES.
In this podcast, I talk about how you can achieve work-life balance while still being a successful scientist.
Specifically we will go over:
- How to change your mindset about working fewer hours and having work-life balance
- What the research says about working more hours
- How the time you spend working affects your productivity
- How to determine what’s important to work on
- How to be more productive in less time
- How to overcome roadblocks you may face
- My favorite books to help you be productive and enjoy your off time
- and MORE!
