The Core Ingredients
In choosing to commit to a task, you always have to know your ‘why.’ Why are you doing this? And as an ambitious mom, you may realize that your kids are part of your why, but they are not ALL of your why. And be okay with that. Let go of the guilt that’s only burdening you.
Align. Make sure that what you are doing is aligned to who you are and what you want. If what you do doesn’t stir up joy or excitement then you won’t be able to sustain them in the long run.
Be present. We are often told to seek balance. But it is really difficult to do so when you have children, spouse, career, friends, clients, etc. to balance. So Angela suggests replacing the word balance with being present. Because trying to ‘balance’ and worrying about multiple things at once is counterproductive. Focusing entirely on what you are doing in the present makes the task manageable.
But let’s admit it, it’s difficult to be 100% present all the time. So Angela says that the best thing you could do is to actively remove distractions. You’d eventually get better at it over time. In addition,
