Awesome podcast as usual! What I found most interesting is how people tend to work more the following day if they feel that they did really good the day before – as Dr. Erika Patall said, it’s sounds counterintuitive which makes it super interesting!
So glad you enjoyed it, Divine! Yes – really interesting point isn’t it, I guess it’s related to the idiom “resting on your laurels”… though not something someone with your fierce work ethic would often struggle with, I’m quite sure!!
