Productivity lesson from Star Wars

Productivity lesson from Star Wars

Today’s video is based on one of Yoda lessons in the Star Wars episode Empire strikes back. I’ve heard this lesson from my mentor a while ago now, and have repeatedly shared it with my private clients.

I now watched Star Wars for the first time, thanks to one of my children becoming a huge fan of Star Wars just a few weeks ago. I was excited to see that it is one of Yoda’s most famous and quoted lessons.

In this video I share with you exactly how to apply it in your everyday life to become more productive. Watch it now and enjoy!
