This week Kathi returns with Crystal Paine, author of The Time Saving Mom, for part 2 of their discussion on how to juggle a lot, enjoy your life, and accomplish what matters. Last week Crystal shared the six priorities that keep her from feeling distracted by a million little things. This week Kathi digs in and asks how Crystal makes that work in her day-to-day life.
Crystal and Kathi share about these methods to manage time:
- Using a hybrid of digital and paper planning systems
- Time blocking and space blocking
- Leaving some hours each day unplanned
Crystal lived through an extremely busy season while writing this book, so she claims to be living proof that this system works even when life is turned upside down! Saving time is about focusing on your priorities – it is not about cutting everything out, but living your life intentionally and living a life that matters.
