    Why You Need To Do Hard Things For An Easy Life

    Why You Need To Do Hard Things For An Easy Life

    In this solo episode, I give you a pep talk on why in order to live a life of freedom, comfort and ease — you need to first face some discomfort. Inspired by a TikTok by motivational speaker Jay Alderton, this is the idea that doing hard things leads to an easy life...while doing easy things leads to (you guessed it!) a hard life. And because I know nobody actually *enjoys* doing uncomfortable things, I've also included 3 practical tips for incorporating this into your life in a relatively pain-free way.

    Is Multitasking Really The Enemy?

    Is Multitasking Really The Enemy?

    PROCRASTINATOR TO ACTION TAKER CLOSES TONIGHT! ENROL HERE--> procrastinatortoactiontaker.showit.site
    Multitasking gets a bad rap and honestly, it's not hard to see why! It splits our focus, keeps us distracted and makes it impossible to get into a  state of flow (the holy grail of productivity!) But, is multitasking always the bad guy, or can it actually be helpful when it comes to getting certain tasks done? In this solo episode, I make the case for multitasking to fit more into your day. Plus, when it's wise to multitask, and when you should stick to monotasking instead.

    Note: This is an episode from the archives, from back when the podcast was the A Day In Progress podcast. So, if I reference A Day In Progress, that's why!

    Is Perfectionism Causing Your Procrastination Habit?

    Is Perfectionism Causing Your Procrastination Habit?

    THE PROCRASTINATOR TO ACTION TAKER COURSE IS NOW OPEN! Enrol here: http://procrastinatortoactiontaker.showit.site/

    In this solo ep, I'm delving into the link between perfectionism and procrastination. Because, while many people believe that procrastination is caused by just 'being lazy' it's often actually a coping mechanism to resist fear — whether that's fear of discomfort, fear of failure or fear of making a mistake. It's for this reason perfectionists can be biggest procrastinators at all! Tune in for the 4 biggest signs that perfectionism is the hidden saboteur behind your procrastination habit.
