Prioritizing, organizing and time management are fundamental skills that everyone should have, but unfortunately many never learn. Self-described school junkie and founder of SchoolHabits.com, Katie Azevedo, joins Dr. Hallowell to share some habits and hacks to help get you through school, work, and life in general. The conversation includes an in-depth discussion of The Pomodoro Technique, a time management system that was developed by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980's that everyone can benefit from, not just those with ADHD!

Benjamin Hardy believes people can change in both big and small ways, but not how they've traditionally been taught. He thinks that "you are who you are because of your environment." If you want to change, Ben says, you need to change your environment. Listen as he talks about why this is true, how people always learn to adapt, even in the worst environments, and his new book that was just released today, Willpower Doesn't Work: Discover the Hidden Keys to Success.
