Less is Less, and That’s Good | #44


We aren’t learning how to stop hustling so we can be more productive in different ways or fit new things into the space left behind — we’re doing it so we can actually, sustainably, do LESS. This episode is all about how to maintain the space you’ve created as you’ve unlearned the hustle, featuring a homework assignment to schedule yourself some rest and examine the thoughts that come up when you do so. 

We also hear from Ash Powers, a client of mine who had to give up a really big goal — xer bachelor’s degree — because of shifting priorities when COVID hit in 2020. Xe shares the story of deciding to quit school and allow the rest of life (being a parent, being creative, enjoying life) to take up the space it deserved. Also, Ash is a very colorful speaker and there are five bloopers at the end of this episode I hope you enjoy! 

You can find Ash on Instagram @WitchyWatercolors, on TikTok @MassivePainInTheDeck, on Patreon @LovingSeaTarot (https://www.patreon.com/LovingSeaTarot) and SOON at ashesgrimoire.com. 

As always thank you to Leave Nelson B for music and Jen Hearn for photography.
