Why I'm calling BS on work-life balance

Why I'm calling BS on work-life balance

I'm calling it.

That’s right. I'm calling BS on work-life balance.

Yes, you read that right. I’m taking a firm position against work-life balance. Or better said, against the type of “balance” that’s talked about so much in magazines and on television.

The 4 most important steps for building a productive daily routine to help you kick procrastination in the shins

As a recovering perfectionist, one of the most pervasive problems I run into is procrastination. The perfectionist way of thinking is: ‘Why start a project when I know I won’t be able to do it perfectly? Maybe I should wait a few months to get better at it first’ or ‘Nooooo, this project isn’t done yet and I can’t move on to the next thing, because there are so many details that aren’t perfect yet!’.

And so many of you loyal blog readers and Soul-Connected Squad members have let me know that you feel the same. You struggle with the exact same issue. That’s why it was so important to me to create a workshop with a clear framework and 4 actionable steps to help you kick your procrastination in the shins and to share this workshop on the blog.
