Scott Gould: Finding Focus Through Flexibility Tradeoff 

Scott Gould is an engagement strategy consultant with nearly 20 years of experience. Most of his work revolves around creating frameworks, forming new ideas, and coming up with ingenious solutions to the difficult challenges his clients face. He describes his ideal day as walking around an inspiring city with his family while meeting new people and discussing great ideas.

Scott joins me today to share how flexibility helps him prioritise his time and his tasks. He explains how he overcomes the challenge to ‘switch off’ as he transitions back from work to focus on his family and shares how the book and concept of essentialism has liberated him.

“The trade-off is scary; but when it does pay off, it’s really rewarding.” – Scott Gould
