Let’s Do Less Together: An Invitation

kn_lets-do-less_email

Ever since my first book, Money: A Love Story, came out in 2013 I’ve been waiting for the “next big thing” to emerge.

There have been times when this waiting has felt calm and peaceful. And there have been times when this waiting has felt tortuous.

Now, I’ve certainly been busy making things in the meantime. Like programs, a wedding, a baby, and a podcast. I didn’t sit around literally waiting.

But, despite staying busy, there was a part of me that was waiting.

Well, three years of waiting (not necessarily patiently) later, I’m finally ready to invite you to join me for the next chapter.

What’s next made itself quite clear to me earlier this fall. After all that waiting, it was such a relief to finally feel a clear direction!

While I can’t tell you all of the details yet, I can tell you this: I’ve never felt more excited and on purpose to get something out into the world as I am about this.

You know those times when you feel like everything you’ve done in your life up until a certain moment has prepared you for that moment? This is one of those times.

I tell you this because I want you to remember three things:

1. You don’t have to feel like you’re totally following your Dharma and living your purpose in order to make things that are useful.

2. Eventually your next big idea will come, but you can’t force it.

3. The muse has her own timeline. Honor it and she will honor you.

I’m so grateful I didn’t just launch another big thing just to get something out there out of fear that I would become irrelevant or disappear. I just kept on keeping on, making things that seemed like they’d be fun to make and useful for other people to receive.

It has been deeply uncomfortable to be in this murky place of not knowing what’s next. But the muck is a fertile place, and if you hang out there long enough, something beautiful will be created. twitter-logo

More will be revealed as this year unfolds, but for now, I made a video for you.

It’s an invocation.

It’s an invitation.

It’s a call to a new way of being for all the women (like me) who have found themselves taking on too much and losing themselves and their sanity somewhere along the way.

If you’ve ever found yourself saying, “Why did I say yes to this?” or “I’ll have more time for myself when…..” then this message is for you.

Who in your life takes on too many things and loses herself in the process? Forward this to her. She needs it.

I couldn’t be more grateful for you for being part of my community and continuing to share your heart and mind with me when I meet you in person and all around the interwebs. I’m so excited for this next chapter. It feels so good to finally know where I’m going so that I can take you with me!

 

OVER TO YOU:

Have you ever found yourself in the murkiness of not quite knowing what was next for you? How did you deal with it? What came of it? Are you joining me for The Do Less Experiment? I’d love to hear from you in the comments!

Self-Promotion: Self-Absorbed or Altruistic?

I get it. It can be uncomfortable. Tooting your own horn. Raising your own flag. Building your own throne. Letting the world know about your awesomeness. We’ve been taught that it’s not nice to brag, that good girls don’t stand out or talk too loud or take up too much space. But here’s the deal:…

A Simple Little Drawing that Melts Overwhelm

We’re headed toward the end of the year, and I’ve seen lots of stuff floating around the interwebs about doing a year in review and how to plan your next year optimally (including the podcast episode that Mike and I recorded on our practices around this). If we want to move things forward in our…

This is why you feel alone and here’s why it’s a good thing.

When you start to say what you actually think, stand for what you actually believe in, and do the things that are truest expressions of your heart, you’re going to start putting people off. Bending and merging yourself with the norms of our culture ensures that you will fit in and feel safe. Standing for…

Why Trying to Find Your Purpose Might Be a Waste of Time.

There’s a lot of talk about finding your purpose in the self-help world. I’ve never been into it. I find the idea that any one of us has one particular purpose limiting. I love the fact that I’m lit up by being a writer, a marketer, a friend, a community creator, a leader, a mom,…

We Are Who We’ve Always Been

I recently went through a bunch of boxes of stuff from my childhood that my mom had been saving in her basement (and requested that I remove given that I’m now an adult with my own basement). Though I’d delayed diving in because the task seemed overwhelming, it was actually really nourishing. Why? Because sitting…

We started a podcast! Introducing The Kate & Mike Show: Life, Love, and Business

Four years ago Mike and I sat in the living room of a hippy dippy house in Kona, Hawaii, bantering about something I can no longer remember the subject matter of. Our friend Danielle listened and said, “You guys should have a show. I would listen to it.” The idea went underground, as they so…

Are you living your own unique life or merely the opposite of someone else’s?

“You know what this is about?” she said. “I have no idea,” I replied. “This is about individuation,” she said. What? I had no idea what Barbara Stanny, one of my dear friends and mentors, was talking about. We were on a coaching call, and I was talking to her about the struggle I was…

Compartmentalization vs. Integration and How to Have It All.

My girlfriend sent me an article about the four burners theory. The idea is that you have four burners in life: family, friends, health, and work. The overall idea is that in order to be successful (whatever that means), you have to cut off one burner. And in order to be really successful, you have…
