Tackling Your Mission While Taking on Side Quests

Episode Description:

When it comes to running a studio or creating a game, it’s essential to be focused on your core mission. However, sometimes we get too caught up in the details of making that happen we end up missing out on life-changing experiences and valuable opportunities.
