On this week's straight-talking smart tech podcast, The Hack hosts Leon, Paul and Dean talk about 100x Leader episode 11 

5 gears to drive your life 100x Leader 

As part of The Hack's 100x Leader Challenge, our hosts Leon McQuade, Paul Longley, and Dean Buffield are back to discuss the latest developments in technology and business processes. Today, they're talking about the five gears and how they can be used to balance work and life for busy professionals juggling career and family. 

What’s discussed? 

The five gears are distinct energy modes: recharge mode, connect mode, social mode, task mode, and focus mode. In this podcast, we discuss the difference between the five gears and how important it is to understand which mode you're operating in at any time. Even when you're just on recharge mode, it's so important to switch off, disconnect, and make sure your time is spent away from screens to make the most of this gear shift - so that you're ready to launch into focus mode when you need to. 
Leon, Paul, and Dean get into the details of the five gears, discussing which ones they identify working in the most and how people, colleagues, and family members working in different gears must work together and practise shifting gears to align themselves with others when needed. Understanding the five gears and how they can be used as a template to understand and control your working patterns is key to efficiency and productivity in busy modern workplaces. 
Suppose you're trying to understand your working processes, and you're looking for tips on how to recharge or improve your focus and collaborative skills at work. In that case, this podcast is full of advice that can help you control switching gears and make the most of your free time and your focus time. 
Listen to The Hack today to hear exclusive insights, as well as work and social hacks that can transform your day-to-day life.
