Welcome to Wise Men Wednesday, your weekly dose of timeless wisdom to thrive both at work and at home.
Podcasts from this week:
Rabbi Daniel Lapin known widely as America’s Rabbi, is a noted rabbinic scholar, best-selling author, and TV host. As one of America’s most eloquent speakers, his ability to extract practical life principles from the Bible and transmit them in a life-changing and captivating manner has brought thousands of Jews and Christians closer to their respective faiths. Pairing his inheritance as a descendant of a multi-generational rabbinical family with his background in science and business, he teaches ancient Jewish wisdom in an unparalleled manner.

Words of wisdom:
“It is wonderful how much work can be got through in a day, if we go by the rule— map out our time, divide it off, and take up one thing regularly after another. To drift through our work, or to rush through it in a helter-skelter fashion, ends in comparatively little being done. “One thing at a time” will always perform a better day’s work than doing two or three things at a time. By following this rule, one person will do more in a day than another does in a week.”
