Podcast Episode 128: How 15 Minutes Can Change Your Life with Cara Harvey

To-do lists. Are they a necessary evil?

How many times do you look at your to-do list at the end of the day and feel like a failure? Even though you have the best intentions, to-do lists always seem to get longer, not shorter.

Sometimes it’s because your dog rummaged through the trash and cleaning that up took 20-minutes out of your work time.

Other times its because you budgeted 30-minutes to clean out your closet, but it ends up taking 3 hours!

The truth is: you can’t bend time to your will and telling yourself that “you don’t want it bad enough” brings on more shame than change.

That’s why we are talking to our friend Cara Harvey about her new book The 15 Minute Formula and how to ditch the hustle mindset and instead create schedules, goals, and routines that fit into our busy lives – without the overwhelm or the burnout!

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast you’ll learn:

  • How the phrase “just prioritize it” is a disservice to moms
