I had a blast in my interview as a guest expert for Smead’s podcast series! My topic was “Crazy Busy” is Not A Badge of Honor” and I discussed why we shouldn’t be proud of the fact we are so busy.

Watch this quick 20-minute presentation where I addressed:

  • Why people are so proud of being “busy”
  • A new movement of Life, Work, Balance
  • Looking at your calendar with a fresh eye
  • Replacing the negative language with positive
  • Taking control of your schedule
  • My favorite apps for managing time
  • The idea of the “unschedule”!
  • And more!

I love partnering with Smead and enjoyed the discussion about Smead products with John (my interviewer).

    Lisa I just used your tip on counter offers (giving you credit of course) while doing a staff training. They loved the idea & it helps to really put a positive spin on something that maybe could have been in a negative way. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

      Laurie –

      I love hearing that used the counter offer technique! Wonderful. It does put a much more positive spin on something that could be negative and it usually gets results. Bravo to you. And thanks so much for your comment.
