Six Pixels of Separation Podcast

Mar 12, 2023

Welcome to episode #870 of Six Pixels of Separation - The ThinkersOne Podcast.

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - The ThinkersOne Podcast - Episode #870. Meet Chris Bailey (who was also featured on Six Pixels of Separation - The ThinkersOne Podcast back in 2018), a writer, productivity expert, and author of the bestselling books, Hyperfocus and The Productivity Project. TED called him, "the most productive man you'd ever hope to meet" and by Fast Company said he's a "productivity mastermind." Chris brings a unique approach to productivity that is very different from the hustle culture that we are all exposed to. His latest (and most personal) book is, How to Calm Your Mind - Finding Presence and Productivity in Anxious Times. While this may seem opposite to the tenets of productivity, it is not. In fact, the birth of this book happened after Chris suffered from an on-stage panic attack. It was in the healing process that he recognized how critical it is to invest in calm at the same time that we invest in becoming more productive. He has spent the past decade experimenting with every productivity tactic under the sun and separating what works from what doesn't. His experimentation has included meditating for 35 hours in a week, using his smartphone for only an hour a day, and working 90-hour weeks, among other things. His TEDx Talk, How to Get Your Brain to Focus, has been viewed over 14 million times. In addition to his books, Chris is the author of the Audible Original, How to Train Your Mind. He has his own newsletter on the topic as well as the podcast, Time & Attention. Enjoy the conversation...
