How can you make time for both your personal and professional lives?

Last week, I laid out how I’d want to spend the last day of my life.

That’s a common cliche you hear when it comes to how you can get the most out of life.

Which is why in this video, I go through, step by step, what I’d want my final 24 hours to look like.

I hope you’ll play along at home…
