Are your days starting to feel extra full, packed minute to minute with no space to create, no space to rest, no space to restore? If you need a reminder that it’s okay to not do it all, then episode 152 of the Lead with Love podcast is for you.

In this solo episode, I’ll share how to create more space and simplicity in your life, so you have room to create and focus on what’s truly lighting you up.

I’ll share four simple steps that help me reset my mind and prioritize my schedule:

1. Connect to your vision
2. Clear the mental clutter
3. Clear the deck
4. Calendar your priorities

It is ok to not do it all, at least not all right now.
