Living Your Life at the Pace You Want
Time management isn’t always the answer. Sometimes you have to take a step back and rethink how you’re living your life. In this episode of our retirement podcast, we talk with Yvonne Tally, author of Breaking Up with Busy: Real-Life Solutions for Overscheduled Women. We discuss Yvonne’s story, how being busy has become a status symbol today, even in retirement. And creating a different mindset can be a game-changer at any stage of life. Yvonne offers her insights on how technology and expectations can get in our way. She offers practical, yet powerful recommendations on actions you can take to cultivate a deeper connection in your life.
Our world has become a 24/7 whirlwind of activity and that doesn’t stop. With the buzzing of devices, packed schedules, and commitments, we can become blind to what truly matters most. And losing sight of that’s can have serious consequences as Yvonne shares in her personal story. Yet slower down to a saner pace of life offers a chance to take back control and appreciate what we value most.
Although her inspiring book is geared toward women, we found it to be very valuable as well, and highly relevant to transitioning to retirement or even in your life in retirement. Start living your life the way you want to and Break Up With Busy.
UPDATE: The pandemic and lockdown life have a silver lining. It’s stopped the Merry-Go-Round for a while and given you an opportunity to step back and evaluate how you’ve been living your life. Yvonne’s advice is timely now. Is it time for you to Break Up With Busy in the New Normal?
