PPU 043: 8 Ways to Stay Sane When Life Throws You a Curve Ball


In today’s episode of the Productivity Power Up podcast, we share 8 things you can do to help keep you sane when life throws you a curve ball. On May 13, I was involved in a pretty bad car accident. My car was totaled and I sustained a few injuries (not too serious) that I’m still having to deal with. As you can imagine, we are now having to deal with insurance companies, my job, a new puppy, and the loss of my vehicle all at the same time. While I consider myself to be an organized and productive person, these types of curve balls can test anyone. Today I’m going to give you 8 things you can do to help you manage through the “curve balls” of your life.
