this family life episode 28: on 11 things I don’t do

A short solo episode from me in episode 28. It follows up from my previous solo episode on 11 signs that you could be a busy addict .

It is so easy to look around at others and think they seem to be doing it all, when the reality is often very far from that. On the blog and the podcast I do talk about things I do with and for my family, but I certainly don’t do “it all”. I am not even sure I know what “it all” means!

So I wanted to share some things that I don’t do. And I don’t do them as I have made a conscious decision not to do them. Every time we spend time on an activity, we are making a choice about where we spend our time. I am choosing not to do these things, because I would prefer to spend my time somewhere else.

To become better at how we manage our time, we need to make conscious decisions on both the things we do and don’t do.

Listening to podcasts

If you have never listened to a podcast, don’t worry it is simple and there are a number of ways you can do it. I wrote a detailed post with screen shots that you can find here – How to listen to podcasts, or you can follow the brief instructions below:

  • on iPhone/iPad/iPod – it automatically has the Podcast app downloaded on the iOS devices. Look for it on your device, open it up and search for this family life. Once you have found it click subscribe and from that point on all new episodes of the podcast will be automatically updated for you.
  • on Android – there are a number of apps you can install to listen to podcasts on your Android phone. Podcast and Radio Addict is free and will keep you updated once subscribed.
  • on computer – you can find the podcast here on iTunes and listen directly on your computer.
  • the player below! – you can always hit play on the player below and listen directly.

I would love your feedback on the podcast and if you enjoyed it, it would be tremendously helpful if you left a review on iTunes. Leaving a review makes it easier for others to find the podcast and hear the amazing wisdom these parents have to share.

Thanks so much for listening!
