Episode 193: Find Your Focus, Cut Your Stress | Jay Papasan

Around this time of year, things can start to get a little crazy.

We all start the year with certain goals, but life often throws us these curveballs that we don’t see coming – and, before we know it, we’re struggling to find clarity and dealing with overwhelm. But, in the midst of all of that, there’s ONE thing we can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary.

In this episode, Jay Papasan returns to share how you can find your focus, cut your stress, and hit reset so that you can get back on track towards completing your goals for the year – not by doing more, but by doing less.
