You might remember today’s guest, Christa Hutchins, from the bonus episode about remote working success back in March, right as all of our offices were closing up so we could hunker down for the first few months of covid-19 stay at home measures.
I’m thrilled that Christa is back to share more of her story, and here on It’s About Time that story always includes a behind-the-scenes look at how my guests “do life.” This episode is no exception. In fact, Christa shares exactly how she stays on top of her 9-to-5, 40 hour a week, full time job in the engineering industry, how she uses her “bonus time” to support female entrepreneurs and ministry leaders as they grow their businesses, and still makes time to love on her family. For Christa – it comes down to having a time management system that’s flexible, fast, portable and easy to search – and that means going digital.
I know some of you listening are die-hard paper planner users, but hear me (and Christa) out. You might find some inspiration that you can use in your current system, or some opportunities to take baby steps in the direction of going digital.
