    #56 What I've Been Up To

    #56 What I've Been Up To

    Welcome back to Addicted to Busy! It's been a while, and I wanted to share a significant life update and the new directions I'm exploring.

    Firstly, I've returned to property management full-time! 

    This life change has been the perfect opportunity to put my skills to the test. It’s the perfect chance to prove that the things that I share on this podcast and in my course are concepts that I, too, follow. 

    And, I can be humble enough to say that following these ideas isn’t easy. I’m constantly battling my inner dialogue that tells me that busy-ness and over-doing it are the answer. But I have to remember that the way that I choose to spend my time is a reflection of what my values are. 

    This year, my focus is on becoming a better speaker. I took an improv comedy class to improve my quick thinking, which was both terrifying and gratifying. Currently, I'm working with a mentor to refine my public speaking skills and considering taking a graphic design class to enhance my presentations.

    I encourage you all to invest in your skills in enjoyable ways. For me, activities like salsa dancing provide a mental break from work, preventing burnout and keeping me energized.

    Throughout this transition, I'm fighting old habits of overworking and perfectionism. I'm prioritizing sleep, health, and setting attainable goals. I've created non-negotiables that ensure I take care of myself daily, making me a more effective manager and person.

    Remember, while we can do anything, we can't do everything. Strategic planning and knowing when to recalibrate are crucial. I have many goals, but I've learned to prioritize and pace myself.

    Though I can't commit to weekly episodes right now, I promise to return with new content when possible. Your feedback is always welcome, and if you need a speaker, reach out to me on Instagram at Addicted to Busy or via email at hello@annajavellana.com.

    Until next time, keep going. I love you all!

    #55 Decoding Your Emotional Appetite with Molly Zemek

    #55 Decoding Your Emotional Appetite with Molly Zemek

    I’ve been there.

    Busy property managers frequently encounter the challenge of succumbing to overeating or overdrinking at the close of each day. The demanding nature of our roles, coupled with the physical exhaustion from managing properties and addressing various issues, often leaves us with little energy for self-care. The daily grind can lead to a sense of overwhelm, making it difficult for property managers to resist the urge to seek comfort in food or alcohol as a form of reprieve. 

    Tune into this week’s episode where we welcome Molly Zemek, a professionally-trained chef, certified sommelier, and author of the new book "Decoding Your Emotional Appetite: A Food-Lover's Guide to Weight Loss." She hosts the internationally-ranked podcast "Weight Loss for Food Lovers" where she empowers food and wine lovers to feel and look their best without sacrificing the things they love.

    #52 Lessons From A Water Leak

    #52 Lessons From A Water Leak

    I love a great analogy. 

    Imagine a tenant calls you and says, “there's water coming in from my ceiling.”  In many cases, the tenant assumes that the water is coming from the same place in the unit above them. But anyone who has been in property management long enough knows sometimes that leak is not coming directly from above the tenant.

    It could be coming from the complete opposite side on the building and two floors up.

    The same can be true of our goals. 

    Sometimes what we think we need to work on, isn’t always what we actually need to work on.

    You may have set a resolution to exercise consistently. The problem may not be exercise - it could be learning how to put yourself first or it could be challenging yourself to get up earlier.

    Perhaps you set a goal to save more money. The problem may not be your spending - it could be that you need to learn to say no or that you are ready to ask for a raise. 

    In this week’s episode, we talk about how goal setting will cause us to grow in more than one way - and why that’s a beautiful thing.

    #51 Redefine Your Definition of Success

    #51 Redefine Your Definition of Success

    When it comes to achieving our goals and reaching major milestones in life, we often place a lot of emphasis on celebrating the big wins. We throw parties, share our successes on social media, and bask in the glory of our accomplishments. And while these moments are definitely worth celebrating, we often overlook the importance of celebrating our small wins along the way.

    Small wins may seem insignificant in comparison to big achievements, but they are in fact crucial for our personal growth and overall wellbeing.

    While it's great to acknowledge and celebrate big successes, we often overlook the importance of celebrating our small wins. These smaller victories may seem insignificant in comparison, but they actually play a crucial role in our personal growth and overall well-being.

    In this podcast episode, we'll delve into why it's so important to celebrate your small wins and how doing so can have a positive impact on various aspects of your life. From boosting motivation and confidence to fostering a healthy mindset, recognizing your small accomplishments is key to achieving long-term success.

Anna just gets it.

Anna is real in understanding the daily pressures and crazy scenarios that we deal with in property management. I refer all my team members to her podcast and encourage them to listen and use the techniques she offers to improve balance between work and home. If you’re not in property management, this podcast is still a great listen.

Just what I needed

I’m so glad to have found this podcast that is relatable to the industry of property management, but also shares valuable tools for a better life in general! Thank you Anna! “keep going” as you would say 😊

Everyone needs to listen!

Holy relatable! I’m a commercial insurance agent, wife, and mother to two young kids. So just call me “addicted to busy,” too! And while this podcast is geared toward property managers, I’ve taken so much from my listens. Anna discusses topics that are all too prevalent in today’s working world — perfectionism, burnout, and achieving the wildly sought after “work/life balance.” The truth bombs she drops — about how YOU, YOUR mind, and YOUR habits are keeping you stuck and the easy-to-implement steps to create a better tomorrow — will leave you feeling energized and hopeful. I’ll “keep going” Anna (I’m coining her signature sign-off) — keep the invaluable content coming!
