    Ep. 37: Reimagining Our 2020 Goals

    In the first new episode after their season break, Melia and Gill revisit the 20 for 2020 goals they set in January. The past few months have been exceptionally tough: the global pandemic and its repercussions, the long-overdue reckoning with racial injustice, and the mental load and uncertainty about the future that comes with all of it.

    Melia and Gill discuss how their goals have changed since the beginning of the year and what’s important to them for the rest of 2020. They share how they’re refocusing on some goals and letting go of the rest – plus four tips to help you reimagine your own goals.

    Ep. 36: Embracing Emotions at Work, with Liz Fosslien

    Melia and Gill talk with Liz Fosslien, the co-author and illustrator of the Wall Street Journal best-selling book No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions at Work, with Mollie West Duffy.

    Liz offers research-backed advice on how to express our emotions effectively at work. It’s always been tricky to find the right balance – sharing just enough without oversharing. Now that many of us are working from home during a pandemic, we have both a challenge and opportunity to learn to navigate the complex emotions we're all feeling. Liz shares tips for identifying and understanding our emotional needs, communicating digitally with coworkers, and creating a healthy emotional culture on teams.

    Minisode: What Do We Carry Forward?

    Minisode: What Do We Carry Forward?

    Melia and Gill recorded this minisode during the COVID-19 quarantine. They check in on how they're doing with it all and discuss the question, “What from this time are you looking to carry forward?”

    They like the phrasing of the question, because although none of us knows what exactly the “after this” will look like, we can set our intentions about the lessons and practices we’ll carry forward with us.

    Ep. 35: Mindfulness in Tough Times, with Dr. Megan Clapton

    Melia and Gill talk to Dr. Megan Clapton, a licensed professional counselor and the founder of Mindful Therapy, about mindfulness, resilience, and coping techniques to get us through difficult times.

    Megan talks about what mindfulness is and how practicing it in small ways can help us through moments of stress and anxiety. She also shares strategies and lessons learned from a tough personal experience – being in medical isolation with a serious illness – that are relevant for all of us right now. She encourages us to ride the emotional waves, feeling all the feelings, getting curious about them, and knowing that they’re temporary.

    Ep. 34: Sharing Your Gifts for a Better World, with Heather Andersen Shellen

    Melia and Gill talk to Heather Andersen Shellen, a longtime friend from California, about creating a custom blend of identities, what “real work” and “paid work” mean to her, and how she is trying to move toward a better world through creativity and intentional action. As a stay-at-home parent, she shares her advice for staying sane during the coronavirus quarantine.

    Heather is a writer, musician, activist, baker, and generally delightful person. With humor and honesty, she talks about marrying her middle school sweetheart, experiencing heartbreak and hope during struggles with infertility, and raising children in a household that cares about issues of gender, race, and equity.

Thoughtful and inspiring

I love how organized the episodes are and I’m grateful for the actionable takeaways they provide. It is so affirming to hear people talk about things I have struggled with for years. Thank you for putting so much dedication into this podcast!!

It’s like having a chat with friends

I’ve been meaning to post a review for so long. I love this podcast and these ladies. I mostly listen while driving and it’s like having a motivating chat with old friends. I laugh audibly quite often and tally up my own get it togethers and got it togethers. But I think the ultimate vote for this podcast is a story of my drive home from school with our toddler last night. He was in epic meltdown mode and I decided a little Semi-Together might help my own mental state while listening to his wailing in the backseat. I kid you not, he instantly calmed down and listened with a face that I’d call thoughtful. You rescued my drive home and maybe even taught our 1.5 year old how to shape up his life. Can’t wait for more!

Motivation & action

I love how they present self improvement topics with a great summary and provide action steps to improve. Their candor and soothing voices have made this a favorite listen and encouraged me to share my own get it together/got it together with friends.
