A lifetime as a productivity geek who’s also a mom to five and a lawyer has taught me a few lessons and left me with a firm belief that there are very few productivity “rules” that apply to everyone. What I’m sharing today are the simple bedrock principles I follow in managing life as a mom, wife, lawyer, writer, and podcaster.
What if you are overwhelmed with all of the changes you'd like to make to your current formula for living? What if you simply don't know where to start....
Start with your biggest pain point right now!
What is the one thing that is giving you the most angst?
What is the one thing that if changed, could make so many other areas of your life easier?
What is the one thing that unecessarily consumes too much of your mind and your energy?
The YFFL guidebooks step you through some brainstorming and introspection to help you to define your priorities. Even if you can't come up with your pain point right off the top of your head in this moment - I guarantee, we are going to get to the bottom of it!
And then you can systematically work through the guidebooks based on your priorities, nailing down your formula for your everyday responsibilities, so that your approach to these elements of life, suits you exactly!
And guess what?
Once you are through this process - the chaos dissipates, the small stuff no longer consumes your mind, you feel so much better and you have S P A C E to figure out how you really want to be spending your time!
We can complain about our numerous responsibilities and go through the motions, or we can see that today is the day that we take control, decide what is truly important and start desiging the life we really want to live!
