“Find the mistakes in your process, and you can only win with the results.”

-Jonathan Denn

On this week’s episode of the podcast, I talk with author Jon Denn. We discuss the biggest and most harmful mistakes people make when it comes to attempting to achieve their goals, how you can begin to be and stay organized, and how to best maximize your time at work. 

Jon and I talk about one of the most important aspects of a successful business, which is to remember vital pieces of information. Jon states the importance of keeping an external memory device, whether it be a journal, Google Drive or a digital app. People who do not use a memory device tend to make decisions based on incorrect data or the wrong assumptions.

Jon explains that, “Our conscious minds are terrible remembering devices. The only way to really remember something is to get it into your long-term memory.
