This week, I’m thinking a lot about time. How to finish all the last minute holiday planning and gift buying/giving, while also trying to make sure that gatherings — even if they are virtual — are special and memorable. Every year, including this one, I struggle with a to do list that seems to stretch for miles. Couple that with my own — often unrealistically high– expectations and it can be a bit overwhelming. I suspect you can relate! As I was thinking about all of this, I was reminded of a conversation I had back in March 2020 with time management and productivity expert Laura Vanderkam (Episode 93).
Because Laura’s advice remains incredibly insightful, I’ve pulled some particularly valuable excerpts from that earlier conversation — tips and perspective that really resonated with me, and I hope will with you too!
I know your time is precious, but I think you’ll find this conversation and investment in YOU worth it! Let me know what you think. If you are listening on Itunes, please be sure to click “review” and leave a review. I’m always so grateful for your input, suggestions, and constructive feedback.
Until next time, take care!
