Two Booked Up

30-05-2023 • 32 mins

It’s time for a revolution! Our new featured book is by business partners, Lizzie Penny and Alex Hirst and it’s entitled Workstyle: A Revolution for Wellbeing, Productivity, and Society. Workstyle is a Sunday Times Number 1 Bestseller and when Lizzie and Alex talk about a revolution, they mean it.

If you're looking to work in your own way — throw out the 9-5, rethink hourly-based work, and even rethink flexible work, this is your book.

Lizzie and Alex have given expression to the ideas of individualised work, autonomy at work, and the freedom to choose when and where you work.

They make the case that by embracing Workstyle, you’ll get three major benefits:

  • you’ll improve your well-being in a holistic way;
  • you’ll become more productive; and
  • you’ll play your part in building a more inclusive society, where everyone will be free to work in their own Workstyle.

If you're sceptical about whether you can ever work in a workstyle way, then tune in — embracing your own ideal Workstyle might be more possible than you think.

Become a better procrastinator

A message from Shelley:

In Episode 26, I explained my 7Rs process for procrastinating better. I also wrote a blog post outlining the 7Rs process.

And now, I’m taking it a step further with an audio course on Becoming a Better Procrastinator.

My aim is to free up hours of time for you each week. So you can get the important stuff done and complete the projects that matter.

And because it’s an audio course, you can do it while you’re cooking dinner, shuttling the kids around in the car, or — even better, treating yourself to a solo retreat.

The course will be seven teaching sessions, each followed by a journaling session. So you could do it over seven days (teaching + journaling), 14 days (teaching one day, journaling the next — repeated for 7 days), or that solo retreat option, where you binge the whole lot on one day and then wake up the next day a better procrastinator!
