Transitions are inevitable. We have to switch between tasks, get out the door, etc. But people handle them in very different ways.
In this week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds — which Sarah and I recorded together in Ft. Lauderdale last week! — we discuss all things transitions. We suggest a personality framework for folks who easily transition between things, with an added axis of how bothered you are by task switching (you can switch easily between things but still find interruptions really annoying!). We discuss ways to make swifter transitions when that is necessary. Knowing that they will happen and building in some time for them is wise, as is making sure that what you need is where you need it (one reason shoes and coats never leave our mudroom!). As always, planning tends to be helpful.
We also do a quick discussion of life transitions — I don’t have much changing right now, but Sarah has shifted up her job a fair amount in the last six months. We discuss her latest project, a Best Laid Plans Live conference in November!
Please give the episode a listen and, as always, we appreciate ratings and reviews.
