Thrilled to present another all-star episode from The Simplifiers Podcast vault, this round, we are talking all about how to make more time in life. Yes, please! Now more than ever, we need this… kids are going back-to-school, the world is reopening again, and we’re organizing our lives in a new way. It’s all about re-prioritizing your schedule and dusting off the routines that keep you thriving.
My special guest today is Nache Snow and she’s simplifying how to organize your life and make more time. We spoke in September 2020 and so much of what she shared back then is incredibly relevant to us all now. It’s time to get back to the basics, do less, and give ourselves permission to (truly) rest more to recharge and flip the script on productivity altogether.
My special guest today is Nache Snow and she’s simplifying how to organize your life + make more time.
We tackle all aspects of it, including:
- what’s working for her with time management through the pandemic and with life being so upside down this year
- how to take an inventory of where your time goes through this week ahead
- why batching your tasks will help you make more time in your life… here’s how to do it
- what happens every time you look back on your day and say, “that task took way longer than I expected!!?” – what’s going on there?
- …and ultimately, she shares the very best, practical tools she uses to help her stay accountable to her daily schedule and keep on track.
Let me be clear… this episode is NOT going to perpetuate the productivity shame and noise that you may have heard throughout the lockdown season… the trope of “you’re wasting time if you’re not doing ALL the things right now!”
What I hope you glean from this is actually to learn how to do less, re-prioritize everything on your plate, and remember how to give yourself a little bit of grace all along the way.
Our generation has never experienced something quite like this in our lifetime. This is uncharted territory and that is HUGE.
So hear my words…
You’re doing a great job. Keep going… and remember what brings you joy and helps you remember who you are, deep down inside. Focus here first and when you make time for these experiences, your life expands exponentially as well.
Q: Are you looking to organize your life and make more time? If yes, this one is for you.
It’s time to #DoTheThing!
