6. Just F*cking Focus! (The Must-Do List Will Change Your Life)
This week’s episode begins with a story about the time Sarah Knight filled a cat litter box with sand and hid it under her desk at a fancy Manhattan office building so she could stick her feet in it and pretend she was at the beach. What the f*ck does that have to do with anything? Good question! This week’s focus is on prioritizing—not only the sh*t you have to do, but also the sh*t you want to do, including “me-time” and recreational activities. Sarah’s Must-Do Method is a life hack that will help you manage your day-to-day tasks much better, get your self-care in, still be able to procrastinate (responsibly!), and ultimately avoid the overwhelming burnout that caused her to turn to a litter box for comfort.   Today’s topics:   •                     Prioritizing by urgency •                     Responsible procrastination •                     How your to-do list is is hurting you •                     Turning your to-do list into a MUST-do list •                     The importance of “me-time” •                     Weekly NFG tip: “You’ve got to lobby for your hobby!”   Visit www.nofucksgivenguides.com for more information and to sign up for the No F*cks Given Newsletter.

How to be pension confident with Romi Savova, Founder of PensionBee
Saving for retirement can feel like a distant goal, with pensions often feeling complicated and impersonal.   But with research finding that by the time a woman is aged 65 to 69, her average pension wealth is roughly a fifth of that of a man the same age (Chartered Institute of Insurance 2018), saving for your pension can be vital for a happy retirement.  We know the gender pay gap negatively impacts women throughout their career. This disparity also affects how much we can save for our future, so how can we address the gender pension gap and ensure that we work towards closing it? My guest today is Romi Savova, the founder and CEO of PensionBee - the leading online pension manager giving customers ownership of their savings, encouraging them to actively interact with their pension pot through a unique combination of technology and customer-centric service.  In this episode, Romi shares how we can better understand our pension plans, the importance of financially planning for later life, and how to start saving.  It’s also a very exciting time for Romi as she gears up for PensionBee’s upcoming IPO. With only 5% of the FTSE 100 CEOs being female (IG Group, 2020) we take a look at Romi’s experience as a female founder working in the financial space and how her organisation has achieved complete gender parity.  You can follow and connect with Romi at:    * PensionBee: https://www.pensionbee.com * Twitter: @romisavova We shared some resources in this episode.
