Making It Easy to Do What Matters Most With Greg McKeown
We often receive the message that we can have it all; we can do it all. Social media messages, societal expectations, and our own self talk often feed the lie that we can do EVERYTHING. When we don’t live up to the unrealistic expectation that we can do everything and succeed at everything, there is a cost to our mental health.
In this episode, we discuss this topic with New York Times best selling author, Greg McKeown. He helps identify the lie that we can do everything, and instead offers a path of wisdom, balance, and priorities instead of the wild racing that we often indulge in when we are trying to say yes to everything. He gives us very applicable steps on how to make doing what truly matters to us easy.

Review of the week--we love our dad listeners!
Loved the playful parenting episode. As a father, that is a subject I face all of the time. Learned a lot about how to approach it better and more effectively. I added many of the great suggestions in playing and interacting with my kids and it has been amazing.
