Back to Work is an award winning talk show with Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin discussing productivity, communication, work, barriers, constraints, tools, and more.
Hosted by Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin.
TOPIC: Motivation, Hardware Stores, and Fighting the Last War
This week, Dan and Merlin talk about motivation—how it changes, how it doesn't, and how it can be fueled by anxiety and cognitive dissonance.
There is also discussion of Merlin's pear tart problem, the challenge of the engineering triangle, and, yeah, a new t-shirt That's Fine for Merlin.
This week's episode of Back to Work is sponsored by Squarespace and Docusign.
