Hey there! I'm Linda! I was born and raised in Maine, spent the last 6 years in Portland, and now call the Boston area my home!
Most days you can find me playing on the floor with my daughter, writing love letters to my husband, and reading with a cup of tea!
I am mostly known for being able to find all the things my husband has lost, making as much food as I can from scratch, my obsession with chips and salsa, and my mad organization skills.
Let’s talk about a term I came across a few years ago, and I love to use it on the regular now:
I consider these two words to be the secret to success – especially in the everyday things we are trying to accomplish! One of the major reasons that things don’t get done is because they take “too much energy” to accomplish! But, what if the amount of energy it took to get it started was low?!
That’s what activation energy is. It’s basically just a gauge on how much energy it takes to get something STARTED. Not necessarily finished. Low activation energy is what makes it easier to get things done!
Here is a personal example:
Take a look at the things that aren’t getting done in your life. WHY aren’t they getting done? What can you do to LOWER your activation energy to get these things/projects started? It can be as simple as laying out your clothes (or even sleeping in them) the night before you want to work out. Or getting a coffee maker with a timer on it so you can set it the night before and save the hassle of going through a drive thru to get your coffee. There are SO many possibilities! I’m also a big believer in the more work you do up front to prep to save time and stress during the week is so crucial!
What do you think?! Is this something you could do?
