Behind the Scenes Creating the Do Less Planner

I’m the kind of person who sometimes isn’t sure what she thinks until I’m talking to someone else. Not because I’m looking for their opinion or reaction, but because I’m an external processor and there’s something about being witnessed that helps me understand myself better.

Last week Mike and I sat down to talk about something that I’ve been working on since November 2016 that’s finally ready for the world. Until I sat there in our basement with my love and partner in all of the things listening to me, I didn’t really get the magnitude of what I’ve been working on.

I finally realized what a big deal this creation is for me—but also how much potential it has to be a big deal for women all over the world.

Here’s what I’ve found:

When we strike out to make things with the purpose that they become a big deal (or with the purpose that they make us a big deal), they often fall flat or are somehow unsustainable.

When we make the things that are so much an expression of ourselves that we cannot help but make them, even if it’s slowly and quietly in the privacy of our own minds or closets (where I get some of my best ideas), they’re often the things that end up being the biggest deal.

This week on The Kate & Mike Show, we’re taking you behind the scenes in the making of the brand-new Do Less Planner, and in the episode you’ll hear me acknowledge how major this thing that I made for you is.

You’ll also hear:

  • The things about producing our first digital product that have been trickier than we expected (nothing is ever all rainbows and unicorns)
  • How this planner will change your relationship to time, your body, your work, and your worth (I know it’s a big promise but I stand by it)
  • How this planner came to be with some really important nuggets for anyone making anything, digital or physical
  • What the elements of my planner system are and how you can use the insights behind them to get better results with less stress
  • Why this planner has the potential to revolutionize your experience of life

I’m so excited to share this episode with you.

After you’ve listened in, I’d love to hear from you:

What did you hear in this episode that was a new perspective on time and planning for you? How will you implement it in your life?

Leave a comment and let me know!

I’m not sure I’ve ever been as proud of something that’s come out of me other than my two girls as I am about the Do Less Planner. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be sharing it with you now.

Love,
Kate

How to Use Strategic Planning to Get the Biggest Results with Less Stress in 2020

How to Use Strategic Planning to Get the Biggest Results with Less Stress in 2020

I love the smell of new office supplies. Going back-to-school shopping at Staples was my heaven. And I love planning so much that I plan my planning. How about you? Do you use an intersecting system of 3 different color-coded calendars, or are you holding on tenuously to your “keeping it all up here” [points…

Tired Of Being The Smartest Person In The Room? How to Uplevel Your Business Through Relationships

Tired of being the smartest person in the room? How to Uplevel Your Business Through Relationships

When one of the women who joined our high-level program told me that the reason she’d joined was because she was sick of being the smartest person in the room, I absolutely loved her honesty. It also made me think of the rooms I’ve been in over the years and the rooms I get on…

The Opportunity in Illness

The Opportunity in Illness

If you hang around the planet long enough, you’re going to get sick, and for sure someone you love is going to get sick. A year ago my husband was so sick that he dropped 40 pounds in a month, his skin kept peeling off repeatedly, his entire head swelled, cracked, and was oozing, and…

Redefining and Shaping Modern Masculinity with Jason Rosario

This week we’re bringing you something a little different in our weekly conversation. Ever since the #metoo movement and the uncovering of the toxic masculinity embedded in almost every layer of our society, masculinity has been up for scrutiny, and rightly so.

Why Technology Isn’t As Bad for Your Kids As You Think with Jordan Shapiro

Why Technology Isn't As Bad for Your Kids As You Think with Jordan Shapiro

Until quite recently I was firmly in the camp of: Any amount of screen time my kids have is not optimal. I’m not a purist when it comes to parenting, and Penelope can watch a show on the weekends and on the days of the week that she’s home. Even with that small amount, I’ve…

The Surprising Path Beyond Depression, Anxiety, and Fatigue with Kelly Brogan, MD, author of Own Your Self

While I love sharing ideas that are against the grain, I rarely go full-on controversial. But today, I am. To be honest, I’m squirming as I write this because my central nervous system has trouble with the inner explosion that happens when someone has been offended by something I’ve said or an idea I’ve shared….

How Storytelling Can Captivate Customers, Influence Audiences, and Transform Your Business with Kindra Hall, author of Stories That Stick

Years ago I sat in a beautiful theater in Downtown Salt Lake City and was swept away by the stories the energetic woman was telling from stage. I walked out of the session and immediately texted the conference organizer, letting her know that this woman needed to be keynoting on the mainstage next time. Little…

The Simple Story of How We Made $20K Selling A Course We Hadn't Yet Created

Back in 2012, Mike and I were living in a drafty rental on Long Island figuring out how to live and work together. (Oh wait. Still trying to figure that out, minus the draftiness.) Over lunch at a little golf course cafe, we came up with an idea to give our community something they’d been…

The Surprising Secrets Behind Digital Course Creation and How to Create a Profitable "Do Less" Business with Them with Amy Porterfield

When Mike and I became parents, we experienced the most difficult year of our life up until that point due to a combination of the fact that becoming a parent is hard, I had a traumatic birth experience, I struggled with postpartum anxiety and insomnia, and we had a sick baby who would wake herself…
