Re-framing Things + My Audible Library

For the last 4.5 years, I have commuted 1 hour each way to work (5 days a week). I have a love-hate relationship with my work commute… As an introvert* personality type, I love the alone time. As someone with limited free time, I hate the extra 2 hours it steals from my day. Looking…

Lessons From Coins
