The mindset of a 4-day workweek
My guest this week is Joe Sanok who is a Licensed Therapist, Podcast Host, Author, 4-Day Workweek Specialist, TEDx, and Lead Speaker Consultant. His new book, Thursday is the New Friday: How to Work Fewer Hours, Make More Money, and Spend Time Doing What You Want, has just been released, and he tells how he came to be a champion for a 4-day workweek.
When he started his college life, he began to manage his days and chose classes that let him end his week on Thursday. And in his first jobs, he negotiated the same 4-day schedule. There is growing evidence that by slowing down we can actually get more done with less stress.
For some of us runners, we’ve had coaches tell us the same. Running most of your miles at an aerobic pace will make you faster on race day. Yes, we need intensity too. But in smaller amounts than most of us practice.
Joe gives us his opinion on what is the mindset we should have to live healthier, both mentally and physically. Slowing down in life allows us to do everything in our lives in a smarter and more productive way.
The 4-day workweek is growing as a trend in some large companies, and even some mid-sized companies are seeing the value of it.
In his new book, Thursday is the New Friday, he says the first step is to start with getting your mindset settled. If you jump right into a productivity book and you don’t even know who you are, it’s really hard to get the results you want. The next part of the book is about why slowing down helps us optimize our brain. And then we get to the third part, which is how to kill it when it’s time to go to work.
Joe’s latest book goes on sale October 1, 2021 and you can get it at Thursday is the New Friday: How to Work Fewer Hours, Make More Money, and Spend Time Doing What You Want
