How to stop people-pleasing and be really productive instead, with Grace Marshall

by Joanna Pieters | Follow her on Facebook here

Do you ever feel that there’s just too much stuff getting in the way of you achieving what you want to? Or find yourself prioritising what other people want from you? If so, my conversation with Grace Marshall is essential listening.

Grace has inspired me for years. She describes herself as a ‘naturally disorganised productivity coach’, becoming an expert by learning because she needed to. She’s written two wonderful books on productivity, including her most recent one How To Be Really Productive, published by Pearson, and she’s an in-demand trainer on how to get things done in a way that’s practical and real.

On this episode, Grace shares her own story of a ‘mid-life crisis’ in her early 20s, and how that led to a dramatic life and work change. We talk about the myths of productivity and why getting things done really starts with how you think about yourself and your life.

We also share ideas about the difference between people-pleasing and collaboration. It’s a subtle but crucial difference to achieving any kind of success. If you’re not doing this right, it will be a huge barrier to achieving the things that are important to you.

Thanks for listening!
