Why Adam Grant wants you to schedule a regular life check-up
Play • 57 min

How often do you stop and check-in about how you’re tracking with your career and the job you are in? How do you know you're not blindly following a career path you’re going to regret years down the track? 


Organisational psychologist and best-selling author Adam Grant says we should all be scheduling life check-ups. 

A life check-up is just like scheduling an appointment with a doctor, even if you don’t suspect anything is wrong. 

By putting a reminder in your calendar twice a year to review where you’re at, you’ll be more likely to see the vital signs before it’s too late. 


He also shares his hacks for effective remote collaboration and the benefits of setting up your own ‘challenge network’ and how to start one.
