1- I really enjoyed this podcast ep:
My only (possible) pushback would be that I do not see planning techniques as a futile exercise where one is trying to fit ‘everything’ in.
I see the act of planning as a valuable process in deciding what does make sense to fit in. An effective planning system does not mean you can do everything (!), but I do believe it brings more intention to the allocation of our (finite) hours.
2- I am still extremely behind on email, have not looked at EPIC, and our house is still kind of a wreck. Oh well. One day at a time! I do believe I will eventually catch up. The vacation was worth it! Josh noted that we need to give away / discard half of the kids’ stuff and I countered with the fact that this probably applies to ALLLLL of our stuff. At least he seems motivated now too . . .
3- I finally had a good night of sleep and feel amazing but . . . I slept until 8 am. This will not be feasible tomorrow — it’s back to work + the regular routine! Hopefully I will be able to start going to bed at an earlier hour but the kids are still asleep right now so . . . this will probably be a process.
