How many of you can not DEAL with another change in plans? I feel like I can’t possibly make one more decision right now. I don’t have enough information and I’m probably doing all of this wrong.
I know for me, I overthink like it’s my job. Today we’re talking to Anne Bogel who a lot of you know as Modern Mrs Darcy. Through her blog and podcasts, Anne helps us get more out of our reading life (which means we’ll get more out of our actual life) and now she has a new book that is EXCELLENT and timely. One of my favorite quotes from Don’t Overthink It is “the best memories start with things going wrong”. Well, I hope you’ve been buckled up because we have been “making memories” left and right!
This week Anne gives actionable steps and strategies to make easier, more confident decisions so that we can spend more time focusing on the things that really matter in life. You can find more from Anne on her podcasts What Should I Read Next? and One Great Book.
