Keli is amazing. Optimistic, action-oriented, forward-moving... She was putting all kinds of awesome comments on Facebook, on our ads for our webinar, inside our STEP Mastery community. She was posting photos and sharing her story, and I thought, "I've got to talk to this woman!" She'd been feeling overwhelmed. Retired from her career as a writer. Dealing with so many piles. Wanting to get out and unstuck. And she did. It's awesome to hear. But then her husband's cancer became more serious, and she had to pause it all to become his full-time caregiver. But she is making things work. And showing up as a hero. I can't wait for you to hear the lessons she shared with me and Eric.   Have you attended our free training, "How to Finally Stop Drowning in Piles"?

I (April) used to avoid any conversation that involved "budgets." The idea stressed me out--not because I wasn't willing to watch my spending, but because the whole idea felt overwhelming. And being married to a man who majored in accounting and worked professionally as a finance analyst caused some stress and strain.  This incredible conversation with Rachel Ramsey Cruze, author of "Love Your Life, Not Theirs" and daughter of finance expert Dave Ramsey, TOTALLY inspired me. Come listen and then see actual screen shots from our family budget to see how we put things together!

If we do not prioritize our lives, someone else will. And if we do not consciously choose to live lives that matter, excellence will not simply "happen." Greg McKeown, best-selling author of the book Essentialism, is one of our very favorite authors. We’ve read (and listened to!) his book several times, and the lessons within it are powerful. Today’s episode of LearnDoBecome Radio is well worth your time to listen. Here are a few topics Greg covers in the podcast: How to identify your 100-year vision. What long-term story are you writing right now? How can we make sure we're currently creating the story we want our grandchildren to share about us? How to plan and execute an incredible Quarterly Offsite. (Have you heard about those?) Greg shares how you can regain your focus and decide for yourself where your life is actually going. How to create a new habit that will change your life. There's one habit Greg has maintained every day for five years (and nearly every day for 10). I (April) have now adopted this habit, and I now understand why Greg calls this one of the most satisfying elements of his life. (Even if you're "busy," once you do this, you'll know what we mean.) The secret to increasing the chance of sustainability. (Do you tend to burn out? Are you trying to do too much? This solution sounds counter-intuitive, but it works!) How to figure out if you're making a "fool's bargain." Greg made one of these at one point (it's a great story...), and he shares how he learned from it. The three steps that are at the CORE of Essentialism (and how Greg puts this into practice, spending time with his children every week in a way you wouldn't expect). How we can be gentle on ourselves. "Each day is a prototype for living a life that matters." And we get to try over and over.

A little story: I (April) was feeling a bit overwhelmed recently.  It's summertime. We have four children at home with us all day. Eric and I just launched this website after so many years dreaming about it (yay!), and we are working on about five really important projects. I have a tendency to want to do everything...right now, so I make lists and charts, and I work myself hard. I think we would all agree that there's nothing wrong with having a strong work ethic, but what happens when the expectations we set for ourselves start to weigh us down? What happens when the lists you make start to feel like a form of slavery? Do YOU ever feel like even though you get a lot done, you should still be doing more? This podcast features a discussion Eric and I had while we were aligning our goals and getting on the same page. (He even offered to light my lists on fire...) We talk about how to establish routines and expectations that feel exciting to us--instead of simply living a life that parallels a circus full of monkeys (Eric references this quote pictured below). In this podcast, we'll challenge you to assess your routines and expectations and see if there's some way you can reduce your own stress. As you're listening, if there's any advice you'd like to offer to us and the LearnDoBecome community, we'd love to hear it! P.S. The image above is actually something you can buy from Amazon and hang on your wall. We may have to hang this in our kitchen.
