    Day 71 of 100: Why “more” isn’t better

    Day 71 of 100: Why “more” isn’t better

    What’s up my Kate's Take listeners! I’m thrilled to be here with you today! Today is day 71 of 100.
    If you’ve ever struggled with the idea that you have to always be creating more, then you’re in the right place.  
    First, let’s call on our 5 questions.
    These questions are the bookends to your day - answer 1 and 2 in the morning, and 3 - 5 at night. 
    What’s one thing I’m grateful for? What’s one thing I’ll accomplish today that will bring me one step closer to my goal?  What’s something that’s working well for me right now?  What’s something that’s not working well for me right now? How can I either solve what’s not working right now, or get rid of it? It’s never too late or too often to take this pause.
    I could say a lot more about why I don’t believe more is better, but I’m going to share a thought from James Clear on the subject that really resonated with me…
    "One of the common trappings of success is overproducing.
    Companies make money and rapidly expand their product line. Authors become popular and churn out books at a faster clip.
    Scale can empower, but it can also dilute. Something is lost when quantity is valued over quality.
    You have to maintain your standards even when all the forces around you seem to be calling for growth. Push back against more, more, more and remain committed to better, better, better."
    I hope today’s episode all about creating more came at just the right time for you.

    Day 70 of 100: 10-Day Recap - 70% to Your Goal!

    Day 70 of 100: 10-Day Recap - 70% to Your Goal!

    What’s up my Kate's Take listeners! I’m pumped to be here with you today! Today is day 70 of 100.
    Every 10 days we’re going to be taking a step back to reflect with a recap.
    Gauging your pace is a critical step on your journey to accomplishing your BIG goal, so without further ado, let’s dive in!
    First, let’s call on our 5 questions.
    These questions are the bookends to your day - answer 1 and 2 in the morning, and 3 - 5 at night. 
    What’s one thing I’m grateful for? What’s one thing I’ll accomplish today that will bring me one step closer to my goal?  What’s something that’s working well for me right now?  What’s something that’s not working well for me right now? How can I either solve what’s not working right now, or get rid of it? Our 10-day recap allows us to gauge our pace and make adjustments if necessary.
    When you chose your goal to focus on and we set a 100 day timeframe, we gave ourselves a goal date.
    So in relation to where you want to be on day 100, and where you are right now in terms of your progress, how do you feel?
    In order to gauge our pace we’re going to do the following: 
    Write down 3 goals you accomplished over the past 10 days What’s 1 surprise accomplishment from the past 10 days? Write down your top 3 goals for the next 10 days. Write down a habit you’ll implement over the next 10 days. Again, by keeping track of our progress we’re able to pivot or make adjustments to help us hit our goal in 100 days. Also, these recaps allow us to celebrate wins on our journey to accomplishing our BIG goal.
    I hope today’s recap was helpful for you. 
    As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to me and share your wins - and your struggles. I’m kate@eofire.com.
