Tasks:

Step 1 – Listen to the Podcast: For this assignment, I’d like you to listen to Episode 2 in the way podcasts are meant to be listened to – while you’re doing something else. Now, that something else should not be something that takes focus. Don’t try to listen while you’re doing homework, for example. But think about using the time to do something you don’t have to think too much about – go on a walk, fold your laundry, cook.

When you return to your computer to do this assignment, you will copy those 5 ideas into the left-side column below.
