Achieving Peak Mind (with Amishi Jha)

As a creative pro, you must be ready to deliver great results at a moment’s notice, whenever and wherever you happen to be. That pressure can wear you down and cause burnout, frustration, and disconnectedness from your work. In order to thrive, you need to figure out how to structure life and work in such a way that you are poised to produce great work when the opportunity arises.

Today’s guest has spent years studying the nature of the mind. Dr. Amishi Jha is a professor in the department of psychology at the University of Miami, and the author of a new book called Peak Mind. In this conversation, she shares how anyone can better hone their attention and train their mind to operate at its best consistently.
