Overplanning kills magic

Planning is my frenemy. For real, though. Planning is one of my greatest strengths, especially when it comes to work, and taking care of people and other. I get reinforced daily about how wonderful my planning skills are (wooohooo!!).

But actually, I’m an over-planner. And I’m SURE it kills magic. Magic in my relationships, magic during travel, magic in my work. .

But how can I stop when control and planning feels so GOOD. Honestly, I don’t know if there is a better endorphin release than checking a ‘to do’ off my plan. .

Recognizing this alone is helping me plan less, helping me recognize when I’m planning for the sake of planning and not because I actually NEED to make a plan (which is also totally subjective… but, hey, I’m trying for small improvements over here!)

What can you NOT plan today? Where can you fit in unstructured time? Then, (and here’s the kicker), if magic doesn’t happen the first time, do it again, and again, and AGAIN. I’m going to be working on that too, we’re in this together.

Rest vs. buffering + Why This Matters Right Now

The lack of predictability and control that we all feel is throwing us into constant catabolic energy. Even if we have the tools and training to come out of that catabolic state fairly quickly, it’s still exhausting to be constantly triggered. So, it felt important to write to you today to talk about rest vs. buffering.

How I deal with my own paralysis

I have to be honest, things have been HARD for me too. I am a one woman show running this business, a working mom. I have lost a family member in the last month, had close friends diagnosed with terminal illnesses, lost childcare (again), all while trying to navigate and manage COVID/reopening/re-closing/health/sanity/showering/etc. Sound familiar? I’m SURE it does. Why am I sharing my personal stuff with you? It’s certainly not because I think I’m the worst off. I understand my incredible privilege even in this challenging time. I’m sharing because things are just objectively HARD, and they are understandably overwhelming and challenging for almost everyone in
