Setting goals and addressing habits are key to achieving what you want, but how do we choose the right tasks, projects, and opportunities each day to keep us moving closer to those goals?

If you’ve listened to the podcast before, you know that I repeat myself a lot and there’s good reason for that. When we are trying to get a message out into the world, we need to say it more than once in order for it to be seen or heard, let alone for it to be absorbed and create impact. The challenge is that as creators, specifically podcasters, we need to find ways to do that without burning ourselves out in the process. This week, episode 134 of the Positively Living Podcast is about 3 ways to repurpose podcast content!In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Alesia Galati shares her expert insights on why repurposing your content is imperative and how you can maximize all of the work you’ve put into your podcast.Alesia and I cover the following topics:2 ways you can repurpose your podcast content into more episodes (by going deeper instead of wider with your content).Repurposing your podcast content into more general content across other platforms and podcasts as well as some ideas to get you started. Using your podcast content as supplemental content (one of the simplest ways to repurpose).How to tie in marketing and SEO to repurposing.Alesia’s hot take on the age-old feud in the podcasting world about putting your podcast on YouTube. Don’t reinvent the wheel.

As a questioner, I truly believe we need to keep asking questions to ensure our traditions don’t trap us in principle and hold us back from a path better suited for us. This week, episode 126 of the Positively Living Podcast is about permission to follow your own path!In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Stephanie Haynes shares the importance of questioning the reason behind the expectations set on us (by society, family, and self) and she gives you actionable steps to take right now to take the risk and create your own path to follow. Stephanie and I cover the following topics:Stephanie’s perspective on the “all roads lead to college” push in the 90’s and its impact on us to this day. Sobering data on how the college push has not worked and what we can do differently for our children and ourselves by reverse engineering our pathways. The different questions we need to ask to find and follow the right path for us and what we can ask and observe in our children to help them do the same. Simple questions to start your reflective journey. Don’t let fear, stories, and tradition keep you from asking what would make you happy. You have the permission to ask what is possible for you. Thank you for listening!

In last week’s strategy call, I worked with Lauren Yee to time block in a way that was sustainable for her and encouraged her to track and document her experiment to hone in on the best strategy to be her most productive self. This week, episode 125 of the Positively Living Podcast is a strategy call update where we follow up on school style time blocking!In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, Lauren Yee shares how through this experiment, she was able to make space to explore her interests, finally complete the things she used to put off and is now helping others follow in her footsteps.  Lauren and I cover the following topics:Recapping last week’s discussion and action items. Which school structure Lauren picked to follow and the “classes” she created to fill her schedule. How creating a course schedule for herself gave her the “permission” she needed to check off the small tasks that made a big difference. The way Lauren tracked her progress, reflected on her experiment and used her audience to keep her accountable. Lauren’s highlight, lowlight, and major realizations.3 Recommendations to take what she’s doing that is working and modify it to make it better. If something isn’t working for you, you don’t always have to start completely over. Sometimes it is just a matter of pivoting and adjusting where needed. Thank you for listening!

As a questioner, my client Lauren Yee needs to make time blocking work for her in a way that makes sense while incorporating her fun and vibrant personality and we found a way to do just that in this strategy session. This week, episode 124 of the Positively Living Podcast is about using school themes to time block!In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, I coach Lauren on taking this concept of time blocking and structuring it in a way that not only works for her but locking it in so that it feels real to her allowing her to stick to it. Lauren and I cover the following topics:Why having a digital time blocking calendar didn’t work for Lauren. Intentional time blocking to move out of that reaction state and better negotiate and plan for your availability. Building in buffer time and boundaries within your schedule. Creating task loops to ensure all parts of the task get completed every time.Using frameworks that already exist (like school) and shifting them to work for you at any stage in life. Sharing the takeaways Lauren can implement right away to time block like a pro. When you create structure to account for everything on your task list, you can plan your schedule intentionally while giving yourself the flexibility to adjust when needed. Be sure to stay tuned for the next episode where Lauren tells us what she tried, how it worked, and whether or not she’s heading on to the next grade. Learn more about Positively Living and Lisa at https://positivelyproductive.com/podcast/If you’re a DIY dynamo looking for simplicity and productivity support, you’ll find it in the Positively Productive Resources Vault.
