This week on the Dear Handmade Life podcast I’m chatting about time management with writer, artist and art book editor Bridget Watson Payne. We talk about how to find hidden pockets of time, time management from a cultural perspective, aligning your to-do list with your values and ethics, techniques to tackle your inbox, priorities, her book How Time is On Your Side and more.
