Balancing Life & Work Requires More than Productivity Hacks

Jeremy Clopton and Heath Alloway


The Upstream Leader Podcast’s Jeremy Clopton opens up with Heath Alloway to share how past life events influenced his workaholic tendencies. Too often, the individuals struggling with balance are those who meet the characteristics of a great team member, and that is hard to change. He shares his personal story that goes much deeper than productivity hacks to find a balance between the desire to achieve, the fear of failure, and the associated costs.
