Liz and Sarah realize that they need to pay attention to whether their goals are in alignment with how they’re spending their time. It’s easy for all of us to get caught up in tasks and projects that don’t take us where we ultimately want to go. In Take A Hike, they discuss why “catastrophizing” is always a huge waste of time.
