There’s an app for everything! I’m not addicted to my phone, but can’t deny it’s made my personal and professional life easier. Organization and productivity apps are great, but my favorite app is Apple’s Podcasts. The popular series “Serial” was the gateway that led me to the “TED Radio Hour,” “Happier With Gretchen Rubin,” “HBR IdeaCast,” and “Coffee Break French.”
Instead of wishing commutes, plane rides, and long lines were shorter, I now value the time when I can sneak in a podcast. Each podcast features everything from tips on time management, to insights from thought leaders, to case studies in marketing and management methods. Most podcasts are free and easy to access, and all you’ve got to do is listen!
