In this episode, we speak with Dr. Ashley Whillans, Assistant Professor at Harvard Business School in negotiations, organizations and markets and is the author of the new book, Time Smart: How to Reclaim Your Time and Live a Happier Life. Her research mainly focuses on understanding how the daily and long-term decisions that people make about time and money (in their personal lives, their relationships, and at work) impact their wellbeing.
During our conversation, we learned:
-Some common time traps we all fall into, including “time confetti”
-3 key time affluence strategies: Finding Time, Funding Time, and Reframing Time
-How to spend your money to make you happier (spoiler: it’s with time-saving purchases)
-The best way to use your time when you find yourself with 30 minutes between meetings
-How organizations and governments can help everyone be able to put time first in their everyday lives
