If you've ever ignored a pile of papers because the idea of processing everything felt overwhelming, today's podcast is your lifeline. April and Eric talk through the specific steps that will help you create a life with zero piles. They'll cover concepts like sub-dividing the pile before you process it, identifying "action" papers verses papers that simply need to be put somewhere else, and utilizing a functional Command Central to hold the papers that need to be acted upon in the future.

A little story:
I (April) was feeling a bit overwhelmed recently. It's summertime. We have four children at home with us all day. Eric and I just launched this website after so many years dreaming about it (yay!), and we are working on about five really important projects.
I have a tendency to want to do everything...right now, so I make lists and charts, and I work myself hard.
I think we would all agree that there's nothing wrong with having a strong work ethic, but what happens when the expectations we set for ourselves start to weigh us down?
What happens when the lists you make start to feel like a form of slavery?
Do YOU ever feel like even though you get a lot done, you should still be doing more?
This podcast features a discussion Eric and I had while we were aligning our goals and getting on the same page. (He even offered to light my lists on fire...)
We talk about how to establish routines and expectations that feel exciting to us--instead of simply living a life that parallels a circus full of monkeys (Eric references this quote pictured below).
In this podcast, we'll challenge you to assess your routines and expectations and see if there's some way you can reduce your own stress.
As you're listening, if there's any advice you'd like to offer to us and the LearnDoBecome community, we'd love to hear it!
