5 Ways to Simplify Your Life

A male colleague was recently lamenting about a home renovation that had run over time and over budget. He said the following: I wish I had hired a group of women. They would have done it on time and the quality would have been better.

It was meant as a compliment but the subtle sexism is clear.

"Women are known and understood to give more to get the same job done."

While the commitment to excellence can be a virtue, the price we pay for it may not always be. Perhaps there are things we can shed? Roles we can redefine, and expectations of ourselves and other was can let go?

Next week's speaker (April 18 - 5:30pm) will help us redefine our wishes for more time and more energy by simplifying our lives.

Can't wait to see you there!
