#144: How to 10X Your Results, One Tiny Tweak at a Time


If you've enjoyed my previousin-between episodes, then this might be your favorite episode ever. It's one of the most actionable, information-packed interviews I've ever done. This time, it's Joel Stein (@TheJoelStein)asking the questions. Joel is one of the funniest writers I have ever read, and he's great at leading an interview. Here's how it all happened: Joel wanted me to help him figure out 5 areas he could improve for an upcoming series he was going to create. I have many different conversations with journalists.

Work Smarter, Not Harder


We get a lot of questions from folks about how to quit a difficult or stressful job. But perhaps our favorite task here is to help you become better and more efficient at your current gig--so maybe you won’t have to quit, or resort to anxiety meds. And to that end, Liz and Rico are talking to one of their favorite guests: Morten T. Hansen. Hansen is a management professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and author of the book, “Great at Work.” He’s here to explain a research-based list of “work smarter practices,” including shaking things up at meetings. Then, in this week’s Bad Advice segment, Liz and Rico parse whether a knock ‘em dead interview performance really matters. And later, listener Michelle gets some solace from Liz and Rico, and some strategies on how to deal with a nightmare of a supervisor in her Ph.D. program.
