Cultivate Your Life Podcast Episode 002: 6 Ways to Not Waste Your Life


Feeling like your to-do list is running you into the ground? Never feel like you have time for the good stuff of life? Listen in as I tell you about the time I almost ran into a wall. Everything on my to-do list felt urgent, and the only thing that felt done was me. Can you relate? This episode will give you peace and a new way to do your life! LISTEN NOW.

In this episode:

—We talk about 6 ways to free yourself from those times when your to-do list starts running your life—when there’s so much to get done, and not enough time for the rest of life (the joy-filled living part!). You want to flourish and live intentionally, but don’t know how.
—Then, I tell you the one question that will change your life forever. (You really want to know this question!!)
—We’ll step into my garden and talk about how it all started—how I had great intentions in the beginning but it didn’t go so well. I grew too much and missed the whole point. Nothing was fruitful, I was spread too thin, and I didn’t know how to say no. You too? There’s good news for you in this episode.
—Learn all about social media-free weekends and why I do them.
—The old you is growing allthethings at once. The result? Nothing grows well, and you live life in a place of mediocrity. The Cultivated you, though? You’re growing the right things, one step at a time. You’re doing a few things well and loving it.
—Then we get to the best part. I share 6 ways to not waste your life. They’re practical and simple—you can start right now!

Interested in some of the things I mentioned throughout this episode? Here you go!

—Never heard of PowerSheets®? This is the tool I use to bridge the gap between where I want to be when I’m 80 and what I’m doing about it today. This is a system that works—you take action on the things that matter to you throughout the year instead of just setting goals once a year and forgetting about them by February 1st.
—Watch my live class, “How to Plan Your Year,” where we’ll talk about building a rhythm of meaningful celebrations (and pick up your own Celebrations Binder!).
—Read all about how I embraced imperfect progress in my book, Cultivate: A Grace-Filled Guide to Growing an Intentional Life. You can read the first 3 chapters for free here!
—Want to spend less time on social media? Here are 11 ways to eliminate digital overwhelm and 46 productive things to do instead of scrolling social media.
—I wasn’t always a gardener, but I love sharing my unlikely story in my Gardening 101 blog series. You might be surprised at how many houseplants I have!
—Grow as a Cultivator in person with me at the 55th Making Things Happen Conference! Register here.
