How to Manage Your Time Well with Crystal Paine
Manage episode 357787166 series 2390671
Hey hey! Have you been overwhelmed with all there is to do or wondered how to make it all happen? Maybe you’ve wondered how to prioritize better what is most important to you?
Me too, and today’s guest is here to help us with that!
Crystal Paine is one of the wisest women I know, and she (literally) wrote the book on time management: The Time-Saving Mom. We had a great conversation about how to make the most of our days and spend them well, and I think you’ll find some practical help and encouragement here!
Listen in as Crystal and I discuss:
Crystal’s 4-step system for feeling less frazzled in the midst of a busy life
The most challenging piece of managing our time (and why our mindset is so important!)
Two foundational questions you can ask to reduce decision fatigue
One thing to keep in mind to help you focus on what really matters
When Crystal visited with us last year, we dove into love-centered parenting, mom guilt, and what happens when we let our kids make mistakes. She shared the emotional journey with one of her children, who was experiencing depression and suicidal thoughts. If you are experiencing a difficult season, you can find practical wisdom and hope here.
Crystal Paine is an entrepreneur and New York Times Bestselling author of multiple books, including her newest, The Time-Saving Mom: How to Juggle a Lot, Enjoy Your Life, and Accomplish What Matters Most. Crystal and her husband, Jesse, live in Nashville, TN, with their six children (three teens and three under three!).
