How do you deal with different things that are coming at you and competing for your attention? Do you find yourself constantly overwhelmed in your never-ending to-do list? Maybe it’s time to learn to prioritize and call it a day.
We are continuing our Season 2 of the Balance Boldly Podcast how to stop falling into the trap of Desperate Acts! On this episode, our featured guest expert, Jodi Flynn and I discuss the benefits of setting priorities and ranking tasks based on their importance. Tune in now and learn to stop wasting time on things that are neither important nor urgent guilt-free.
Guest Expert Today:
Jodi Flynn is the Founder of Women Taking the Lead, a podcast and community of ambitious entrepreneurial women who want to go BIG. She works with women who are already successful but have not yet achieved the level of success they want to achieve. Jodi helps her clients set priorities, get organized, in action and overcoming obstacles so they can achieve their biggest goals with ease. She became an Amazon bestselling author with the release of her book, Accomplished: How to Go from Dreaming to doing.
Key Points Mentioned
• Break the expectation of yourself to feel the need to continuously push the needle when you really need to pause and take a break.
• If you’re not able to set priorities or rank the order of importance of different things that are coming at you, then everything will be labeled urgent.
• For anyone who’s feeling guilt, ask yourself the question, “If I could go back, would I do the same thing over again? If the answer is Yes, then you can let the guilt go because the guilt has served its purpose.
When we hold on to guilt, we’re not taking responsibility for the decisions that we make and we can’t make everyone happy.
The moment Jodi had to break expectations was when she learned to call it a day. There are emails that needed to be responded to immediately and there are those that really can wait.
Jodi’s Unapologetic Pause is by beginning her day through meditation. She found that by deliberately doing this each day, her posture improved, her breathing relaxed, and she became more confident that she could handle anything that will happen on an otherwise busy and stressful day. She also reads a book, or watches a YouTube video, and just gets up and goes out to enjoy the fresh air.
A little Gentle Honesty….
Recognize the guilt and shame triggers. Pay attention to them so you can begin to live your life boldly. Ask yourself, if it’s telling you to pay attention to something that was just a warning you should listen to; or is telling you that you need to do something, like take a different action? Remember, in order to do that you have to recognize that there’s a problem first.
