Show Notes

Kali Pelham is an educator that has taken big steps to gain freedom from anxiety.  She just finished the reWired Coaching and Accountability Group.

Kali struggles with anxiety and feeling like everything is urgent and important.  She talks about how her involvement in the reWired Coaching and Accountability Group has helped her in this area.  Kali shares her journey and explains her thought process and the conversations with her husband that led them to realizing her life would benefit from involvement in the group.  Throughout this conversation, we learn the areas of her life that have benefitted and she shares specific examples of the tools and practices she has implemented.  Kali tells us about how she has her calendars set up, how she operates her to-do list, and uses programs like Google Keep.

We engage in a 10-minute power coaching session to help Kali determine where things fall in the urgent vs. important matrix.  We also talk about implementing the GTD (Getting Things Done) Methodology to be organized and manage time.  Also, what are the questions to ask yourself to determine the importance of tasks?  Listen to this conversation to find out!
