I feel every single word throughout this post, and I have my cheat sheet at my desk. 🙂 I am definitely going to start implementing these into my life. Saying ‘no’ is a big one for me, but I am finding it more and more necessary to create a better life.

      Hi Ashley, thanks for your comment; it made my day. I’m so glad this came at the right time for you and to hear you have the cheat sheet at your desk. I do too:-) It helps me stay on track and remember I don’t have to do it all or pressure myself. I hear you; saying no is challenging for so many people, but it does get easier as you get more comfortable with practice.

  2. This post came at the right time to start the new year! You make such a great point that it’s not time management, we just have too much on our plates! I’m always multi-tasking and find that many times I’m making mistakes and things take me even longer because I have to redo them. I’m definitely going to be focusing on mono-tasking this year and utilizing a time tracking app! I also love the idea of being able to leave some things undone!

      Hi Jill, I’m happy that point about time management resonated with you because we can be so hard on ourselves and often have unrealistic expectations that would be impossible for anyone to meet. That’s very true; when we multitask, we make more mistakes and often take longer having to do things over again. Monotasking has been a big one for me, and not pressuring myself to get every single thing on my list done is a powerful mindset shift.

  3. What an amazing post Martha! Self compassion is something I need to work on and monotasking is an idea that sounds interesting. These apps for time tracking sound great and I will have to take a look at trying one. Thanks for sharing all this tips which will really help me be better prepared mentally for my recital ahead.
