Home with the kids? 
 
This episode is for you my friend! 
 
So I’ve been struggling with having my son home and I’ll be totally transparent — this has been my MO every time there’s a snow day, or a holiday. I would act as if it was a surprise and it snuck up on me and it does not need to be that way. WHY do I allow this? 
 
Why is planning in this one area of my life (the most important) not managed well? 
 
Working from home and balancing work and family is tough. It’s so easy to plug the kids in.
 
So here’s what I did - I sat down and mapped out a daily schedule for my son and I decided this had to happen as my top priority.
 
There are always gifts from a challenge … a struggle. It’s funny how finally making this happen came out of necessity based on the crisis we are all dealing with. 
 
A rising tide lifts all boats — and so I’ve decided to do my part and share what I created for my son with you. 
 
You can get it on my website. karagottwarner.com and you’ll see a button on the top called “Home with Kiddos Survival Guide."

In this episode I share my support for the challenges we're collectively sharing during this Coronavirus crisis. This episode is off-the-cuff, raw and unpolished with no bells or whistles ... just me hopping on the mic to talk about courage in the face of fear, allowing grace and allow the gifts of vulnerability to move though us.

Do you find all the reasons to not do what you say you will? Your reptilian brain is screaming: "me no wanna! I just want to knit and Netflix!"  

How can you possibly resist? The idea of knitting is perfect considering it's been a long day, and you really want to watch that docuseries on Netflix. "I deserve to kick back," you tell yourself.

What is at play here is resistance. We choose to do what feels good instead of the things that will help us reach our great potential. 

Resistance is so sneaky because it will always convince us to doing something that feels good instead of doing what's hard.

We find all the excuses … I’m hungry … I’m tired. I’m sick.

So many things that seem believable and then before you know it, your goals become wishes.  

What happens when resistance comes for a visit: 

  • When things get hard, we look for things that make us feel good

  • This is our primitive brain kicking in. IT. WILL. WIN if you let it

  • Natural tendency - we want to always seek comfort

  • We would rather take the path of least resistance

  • Humans by nature are lazy

  • The GOOD NEWS - this means you are a normal functioning human

How to overcome it:

  • Plan for it! It's not a matter of IF, it's a matter of WHEN

  • Get comfortable with being uncomfortable

  • You will allow the urge to NOT do what you say you will do. 

  • The payoff of discomfort? You get to reach your ULTIMATE goals. 

Discomfort is the currency of your dreams.

-Brooke Castillo

When it comes to planning, simple and scrappy is my philosophy. 

Planning starts with just one sheet of paper and I show you how in this episode! 

No fancy bells or whistles …

Just YOU, a pen and paper and your earbuds to listen to this episode! 

Planning is the runway ... then you take off and fly!
