You're Not Getting Any Younger

Mar 30, 2019

Today's show is personal because it's all about you and your time. How are. you using it? Whats' on your to-do list that really shouldn't be there? How do you stop saying, "I don't have time?" Because you're really saying, "I don't want to do that" or "I don't like what I'm doing".


Priorities are everything and today's guest is an expert in just that. Laura Vanderkam is the author of several time management and productivity books, including Off the Clock, I Know How She Does It, What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, and 168 Hours.


Her 2016 TED talk, "How to Gain Control of Your Free Time," has been viewed more than 5 million times. She regularly appears in publications including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and Fortune. She is the co-host, with Sarah Hart-Unger, of the podcast Best of Both Worlds.


She lives outside Philadelphia with her husband and four children, and blogs at


Her new book, Juliet's School of Possibilities, features a main character that reminds me a lot of myself. She's stressed out and overwhelmed, trying to make all of her commitments work and in the process, losing people she cares about and opportunities that are more perfect for her future goals.


Laura and I chat about how to break the social media, email checking, and to-do list addiction and focus on what matters.


"How we live our hours is how we live our lives"
