    330: Mister Rogers and Decision-Making (Emily's Favorites)

    330: Mister Rogers and Decision-Making (Emily's Favorites)

    This week we'll finish up our walk through past episodes with one of my all-time favorites about Mr. Rogers. I had been wanting to do an episode related to Fred Rogers for quite some time, but it took me a while to finally pull some threads together and connect my thoughts just a little bit. This episode was originally published as episode 103 in November of 2019, and it explores how important it is to realize the impact other people have on the choices that we make for good or for ill. It's about the creativity that can come from frustration, the connection that can happen when we offer a little space, and the generosity that we all have the ability to spread. I hope you'll listen in.

    329: Decision-Making for Slow Processors (Emily's Favorites)

    This week, we're continuing our walk through past episodes doing something we've never done before. I'm looking back at some of my personal favorites. This episode was originally published as episode 136 in July of 2020, and it explores the question, "Is there room for slow processing in this fast moving world? How can we make thoughtful decisions when everything moves so fast?" It's a great one to revisit. I hope you'll listen in.

    328: Let Time Be Your Friend (Emily's Favorites)

    For the next several weeks, we're doing something we've never done before. It's a bit of a look back at some of my personal favorite episodes. Today's replay was originally episode 71, Let Time be Your Friend. It came about after months of ruminating over this idea of the passing of time and how it's always part of our lives, but we don't often sit and think about it. If you've ever felt like you could make better decisions if only you had more time, if you've ever wished for time to stop just for a while so you could catch your breath, well, today's episode is for you. Listen in.

    I'm so glad to welcome New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Myquillyn Smith. You may know her best as The Nester and I know her best as my big sister. The good news for all of us, is that Myquillyn has a brand-new book available on this very day.

If you struggle knowing where to start or feel overwhelmed with the number of decisions you believe stand between you and the room that you love, I hope you'll listen in.

Mindfulness for the moments

Emily brings you to the present with grace, kindness, and action. Her words are inspirational, stories are REAL, and change is the necessary and needed action.

Practical and peaceful

I’ve loved listening to Emily’s podcast and I’m half way through her new book. She points to peace amidst uncertainty in changing times and making decisions. I love the practical aspects she and her guests bring while reminding me to slow down, that things will be ok in the end. 100% Recommend!

Crowing Hen ,

Win—win

Emily Freeman as host and Parker J Palmer as guest equals a great conversation ! Just dear people in a wonderful discussion about life and living the process instead of living the product.
