Discovering Who You're Not

26: From Crowded To-Do Lists to Purposeful Weeks

What would you do if you had more time in your week?

This episode is your guide to creating a purposeful week. I’m taking you step-by-step through the process of taking your chaotic schedule and turning it into your dream schedule. 

This is for you if you’re overwhelmed, overworked, and can’t fit one more thing on your schedule. I know how it feels when you start writing down everything you have to do and you realize you’re never going to fit it all in. Sometimes my to-do lists have to-do lists. 

The truth is, you can’t always fit it all in. You have to decide what is truly important to you and what you can take out of your schedule because it’s just taking up time you wish you could be spending on something else. 

This process of creating a purposeful week is the number one thing that has changed my life. 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • How to fit it all in 
  • How to decide what stays in your schedule and what goes
  • The power of turning your attention to Jesus 
  • How to build your purposeful week 
  • The value of identifying how you’re spending your time
  • Why you shouldn’t be saying yes to every single activity your kids want to do 
  • The secret to waking up with a smile on your face every day 

I know you might be thinking that you already have no time and I’m just giving you something else to do, but I promise this process is worth your time. It will make a huge difference in the long run. Remember not to try to make too many changes at once. Pick 1-3 things to get started with before you move on because otherwise, it will be way too much.
