LH 64: 7 Steps to Getting More Done

7 Steps for Getting More Done in Your Farm Fresh Lifestyle

This is not a typical episode topic.

I was asked by several listeners to share how I manage to do so much. They wanted to know if I would share homesteading tips for managing time, workload and energy levels.

Well, I don’t think we can really manage time – because we all have the same amount of time, right?

But, we can manage our tasks within that time.

Most of us have way too much on our To-Do lists – which can be overwhelming.

So this podcast is about creating the proper mindset to keep our energy and motivation up while still working on a farm fresh lifestyle. This is not a topic I usually cover on this podcast, but hopefully a few tips will resonate with you on your own farm fresh journey.

There is a worksheet below that you can download to help you follow along.

In this episode, you learn:

  • Why decluttering lets you have better focus on your To-Dos
  • How assessing your personality temperament can help you tackle projects
  • How to sidestep things that drain your energy level
  • Why you should make time for yourself every day
  • How to organize your farm-fresh week like a CEO
  • What is a pile up zone & why you need one

7 Steps for Getting More Done:

Before listening, I highly recommend you download the PDF to work thru the 7 tips for yourself. There are also additional resources on the PDF.
