I am thrilled to share my latest episode with the incredible NJ Shelsby on the Right on Time Podcast!

In this episode, we journey through NJ's expertise in helping women gain control, eliminate distractions, and focus on what truly matters for success while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

NJ begins by illuminating the often-overlooked dual challenges of external and internal struggles that act as productivity roadblocks. From constant distractions to decision fatigue, external struggles meet their match in NJ's strategic solutions. Simultaneously, internal struggles, including mindset challenges like ADHD or periodic depression, are tackled with insightful mindset-changing solutions.

To identify your internal struggles, try observing any resistance you experience to behavior change. Recognizing this resistance, particularly when it comes to actions like avoiding social media until a specific time, becomes a powerful compass for uncovering and overcoming deep-seated internal obstacles.

It is incredibly important to eliminate chaos-producing habits, like keeping to-dos in your head, to recognize and overcome these struggles. Digital clutter is a major issue in our world today, contributing to overwhelming the brain with information from all of the places. NJ recommends strategic digital decluttering using unified messaging apps or tools like OneNote or Evernote.

We want to encourage you to challenge the belief that overwhelm is inevitable. By creating a vision for a different work life and taking tangible steps towards making it a reality, positive change becomes achievable!!

As I reflect on this incredible discussion with NJ Shelsby, I invite those feeling overwhelmed to explore the possibility of a different way of working. The key, NJ emphasizes, lies in desiring change and taking steps toward a more balanced and focused life.

Thank you for listening and for taking this time for yourself! See you next week!
