How to Juggle All the Things

Between trying to pursue a meaningful career, maintaining personal relationships, contributing to your community, caring for your body, mind, and spirit, and having some fun every now and then, overwhelm feels like a given. But it doesn’t have to be. 

Overwhelm feeds itself. When you're trying to juggle all the things and feel like you’re failing at most of them, the frustration, shame, and exhaustion of trying to do it all only wears you down further. When you get that underwater feeling, it’s time to hit pause and make plan to reset. I’ve got one for you.

How Focusing on Purpose can be a Career Game-Changer

Here's Sarah's story...

What kind of work were you doing before we worked together, and how did you know that you needed to make a change in your career?

I am still working as a marketing manager at a large tech company, but I am working on my exit plan to move into my next career as a life coach. 

When I started this journey, I had not felt like I was passionate about anything--job, personal life…nothing. A friend pointed out to me that I was passionate about mentoring the co-op students that reported to me. She said I lit up when I spoke about my students and this led me to think about coaching and wondering if it was a viable career for me.

13 Small Actions To Take When You Don't Feel Valuable

“I’m not valuable."

Most of us have that thought, or a variation on it, at some point in our lives. For others, it’s a default feeling and way of life. 

If you don’t feel valuable, you might: 

  • Stay at your crappy admin job because you think that’s all you can do
  • Tolerate abuse because you don’t want to lose the good parts of the relationship
  • Live vicariously through your friends, spouse, or kid because you don’t feel entitled to fun experiences
  • Stay silent in meetings because you think your ideas aren’t good enough
  • Make room for other people to have/do what they want at the expense of your health and happiness
