In time for the new year, Kyle and Mark reflect on their 2020 themes and establish themes for the coming year.

Themes are different from resolutions, where resolutions notoriously fail, themes propose a different approach: they provide a filter to make all your decisions through. A theme allows you to ask yourself questions like “Is this what I should be doing right now?” or “What’s the best way to fulfill my theme today?” Instead of relying on lofty goals. A theme, in this sense, is a way of life.

Join Kyle and Mark in this episode of The Productivity Lab as they discuss their year.
