In this episode I talk with Laura Vanderkam, the author of several time management books, including the new Off the Clock: Feel Less Busy While Getting More Done. She is the co-host, with Sarah Hart Unger, of the podcast Best of Both Worlds, and blogs at

What I love about Laura is that she has a fresh take on time management. This interview is not a long list of time hacks to shave minutes or even seconds out of your day. Instead Laura shares valuable and effective advice on time management from her latest book like:

  1. Why lingering and savoring the moment is so important for managing your time
  2. Practical and fun ways to make the most out of your time
  3. If anything the number one thing you really need to do to manage your time better above all else (it’s not what you’ve often been told)
