Matt & Chris share a technique they use all the time, called the Pomodoro Technique.

We all have things we think are important, we want to get done, but we continue to put off.

We t…
 
As advocates of strength training, we encourage people to add strength training as a habit.

It is popular these days to laud discipline and the ability to endure suffering. The problem with this is that it ignores people’s values and preferences.

Setting goals, meeting & surpassing goals, assessing progress: these are clearly important to all organizations and people. But, let's be honest, some of these terms-OKRs, KPIs, etc.--are a bit corporatey.
