4. The Power of No (10:29)

5. Plan What You Want to Do so You Can Do it ALL (just not at the same time) (12:00)
You can do anything you want to do — you’ve just gotta come up with a plan. Psst! The more you plan and visualize what you want, the word ‘no’ will become a lot more familiar if things don’t fit the mold.
(12:50) Don’t let your fixed mindset hold you back
6. Time Blocking (13:18)
This will help you with your planning, with saying ‘no’, and with distributing the time you take back for yourself.
