How have you been living your life so far? 

Most of us have worked hard all our lives to be successful. Whilst hard work is commendable, it can start to define your life. Instead, how about we try to work happier so that we can find fulfillment in everything we do.

In this quick dip episode, Rachel talks about what to do when working harder isn’t working anymore. She explains why working harder is actually counterproductive and why it can fail us. Rachel also shares simple but powerful tips to flip your mindset and adopt a healthy work ethic. Work hard at your job, but work twice as hard in looking after yourself. That is how you can create a life worth living.

If you want to know how to work happier instead of harder, tune in to this episode!

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover why working hard is failing you instead of leading you to success.
  2. Learn why you should write a ‘to be’ list instead of a ‘to do’ list
  3. Understand the importance of embracing your limits.
