Apr 11, 2021

In this episode, Ellen interviews Productivity Ninja Grace Marshall. Together, they discuss her new book, "Struggle: The surprising truth, beauty, and opportunity hidden in life's sh*tter moments." Together they discuss:

• How falling apart really can be coming together

• What if what we have right now IS the new normal, and how to live with it.

• The importance of looking at what doors are open to you and considering the things that haven't been considered before.

• Why reframing is important

• How innovation comes from hitting a wall

• The importance of activating curiosity

• Using curiosity to improve your relationsingships

• How calling out the hard things in our lives is important both for ourselves and our kids

• Why letting your work breathe will improve your work

• How letting catalysts change what you are doing

 • The importance of remembering that there is no comfort in the stretch zone, and no stretch in the comfort zone -- and how that can change things.

Grace's book, Stuggle, is available now on Amazon:
