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.  Connect with Adam here: https://www.adamgrant.net/ Take the Think Again quiz here: https://www.adamgrant.net/quizzes/think-again-quiz/ And grab a copy of Think Again here: https://www.adamgrant.net/book/think-again/ Visit amanthaimber.com/podcast for full show notes from all episodes.   Get in touch at amantha@inventium.com.au   If you are looking for more tips to improve the way you work, I write a short monthly newsletter that contains three cool things that I have discovered that help me work better, which range from interesting research findings through to gadgets I am loving.
