#841: Let The Fools Talk While You Keep Working [WOYG Podcast]
We live in voyeuristic world now, where we can watch and observe people, never do anything ourselves, and never feel bored while doing so. I don’t think you have that specific issue, but many do — and they’ll have a lot to say.
Today’s show is about maintaining your focus on what matters — your work — while the fools talk.
2:18 Today’s Topic: Let The Fools Talk While You Keep Working
