How many times has, ‘Oh, just one more thing’ become a vortex that sucks you back into work mode? 

Then before you know it, 2 hours have blown by and you’re missing that yoga class you really needed today. 

If not knowing when to close your laptop, get up and stretch, go for a walk, or even go on vacation is a common theme in your life, then it might be time to ask yourself…

Who’s drawing my finish line? 

This week, Karlee takes you down the slippery slope of calling it quits when you actually have done enough. Whether it’s your workday, your home duties, or a labor-of-love project that’s keeping you in “go” mode, knowing when to say stop is an essential part of what makes a healthy, thriving, balanced human.  

In this episode, you’ll learn what’s behind this deeply held belief that more productivity equals more achievement. You’ll learn how you can begin to face the urge to do more with a quick reality check. You’ll also learn how to make the journey easier by bolstering your support system. 

If you’re ready to be the one who decides where your finish line rests, then this is the episode for you.
