podcast show notes | episode 005 | time: the juggle is real
This blog post serves as SHOW NOTES for our podcast — Cultivate a Good Life. This is not a comprehensive outline of everything discussed in this specific episode. The notes, links, and tips below are just some of what was mentioned. Everything we’re highlighting here will certainly make so much more sense when you’ve listened to this episode. If you haven’t already listened, you definitely should. And you should also just go ahead and subscribe to the podcast. It’s good stuff. Also, these notes show up in the order that they came up during the show.
Oh yeah. We’re going there. And we’re going to be VERY real about our own approaches to all things related to time management, multi-tasking, prioritizing, scheduling, and the juggling act of all of it. No one has it ALL figured out, but we sure as heck are happy to share what works for us, and even where we’re personally struggling.
We invite you to be a part of this incredible community by following us on Instagram — @CultivateAGoodLife. Oh, and pretty please leave us a review on iTunes; it would mean the WORLD to us! Plus, we randomly pick listeners who do leave reviews, to win awesome stuff.

12) Embrace the times and seasons. The goal is always the same, but the way we accomplish those things will change and evolve.
13) Step back and truly assess the juggle.
14) Go easy on yourself.
