I was recently challenged by a colleague for a 100 day challenge…that was 6 days ago. And while I am making progress, I have found myself going back to episodes of my Podcast, Living Intentionally with Amy Smalarz.

You know when you hear something once and you say “Yeah, I agree with that.” Or, “I love that idea!” But then it goes by the wayside. And then you hear it a second time and you take it in deeper, something like, “Hmmm, maybe I should try that.” But still, there’s no change. And then there’s the magic 3rd, 4th or nth time you hear something and it finally sinks in…

While each episode is special to me in it’s own way (I say it every show and mean it because I truly learn something new from every guest) these episodes have struck an additional cord with me this week:

  • Natalie Rountree‘s advice of not always following the leader and listening to your inner being
  • Mark Goblowsky‘s advice of investing in others to nurture your own relationships
  • Scott Mann‘s Rooftop leadership and what it means to leave your own tracks
  • Erika Lyremark‘s advice to “partner with a comrade of kickass”

Each of you has 94 days left in the year…

What are you going to do with it?

With a Smile,

What others are saying [Amazon reviews]:

  • “Living Intentionally has put things into perspective for me! Focusing on what matters most and how to bring that balance to life through guiding words and a new outlook on time management has been eye opening. I am one of those people who wakes up on Monday morning and thinks “here we go again..” but Amy gives you the tools to wake up and appreciate everyday and the time you have to spend with the people you love. She has also inspired me to start a quote wall with my kids so they can learn how powerful it can be to wake up with a positive outlook each day. I know I will be using her “decision tree” going forward and will be going back to redo the “balancing acts” time and time again. Thank you Amy for such a wonderful read! You are an inspiration!”
  • “While there are many self-help books out there on how to get organized and accomplish in life what YOU want to do, I found this book more helpful than others in figuring out ways to balance your life with kids, work, home, AND yourself! Amy keeps in mind that it is not just you involved in this whole process of life balance, but you need to combine your wants with what others want from you-like your kids, your community, your husband. I found this book to be very current, in terms of what we as Moms are facing today with how to achieve our goals.”
