Why You Should Work Backwards // Tim Duggan
Apr 09, 2024 Season 3 Episode 10
Digital Village

In Tim Duggan’s latest book, Working Backwards, he boldly states that if we don’t change the direction of work soon something is going to break, and that something is us.
 
In the latest episode of The Digital Village show, we discuss...

  • Why the way we're working is broken and how working backwards can help mend our fractured relationship with work.

  • The misnomer of 'work-life balance' and flipping work - money - life to life - money - work.

  • Why 'enough' is one of the most powerful words in the English language and why it's important to find yours.

  • The link between happiness and productivity, and how relationships are the key to happiness and longevity.
