EP231: Prioritizing and Valuing Your Sanity with Jordan Harbinger
Today’s episode is so fun. Our guest, Jordan Harbinger, is the host of one of the top all time podcasts on iTunes, so he’s interviewed hundreds of people. He also went to law school and began his career working on Wall Street, so he has a wide array of perspectives to share and I let my curiosity take us to a lot of different places during this chat. We talked about toxic relationships, self-judgment, how to prioritize your life and sanity, and we explored some “soft skills” and the stories behind how Jordan developed them earlier in his career. We also got into self-awareness, the money value of time (took us back to microeconomics in college!), identity, and keeping score in relationships. There are lots of stories and examples in this one, enjoy and share!
