We’re bringing back a classic format from the College Info Geek days where we answer five of your questions, rapid-fire. Well, as rapid-fire as we can get. We’ve been known to ramble a bit.
If you’d like to have your question answered on the podcast, we take questions from email, the YouTube comments for the video version of our episodes, Twitter (Thomas | Martin), or Instagram (Thomas | Martin).
Anyway, here are the questions for this week:
- How do I know what to do first?
- How can I focus better while working from home?
- How can I use a task management system without being buried by old tasks?
- How can I start building credit?
- How do I choose a long-term goal?
