Episode 109: Capacity is About More Than Your Time

What do you do when your to-do list is longer than the space in your calendar? You might think you just need to figure out how to create more time in your day. But did you know that time is only one way you can manage your capacity? Join me for a special conversation in Episode 109 of Just One Simple Thing as I talk to my friend Avery Forrest to learn about the capacity equation and how God showed up on a physics test.

Today’s episode is a little different than normal. Last year, my friend Avery Forrest invited me to have a conversation about managing your capacity for her Christian Business Camp podcast. God had other plans for Avery and our episode never aired, but she graciously allowed me to use the audio so I could share it with you.

If you’ve been trying to figure out how you can get it all done, I think you’ll be encouraged by our conversation.

Let’s jump in. In this conversation, we discussed:

  • The Capacity Equation: Capacity = Energy x (Time+Money+Experience)
  • How God multiplies your capacity
  • Reframing our idea of boundaries

This was such a rich conversation. I love talking to Avery because she challenges me to lean into the Lord rather than depend on my own experience and knowledge.

Head over to my free Facebook group, Plan & Pray with Do A New Thing and grab your capacity worksheet. It will help you find realistic swaps you can make to increase your capacity and decrease your overwhelm.

That was only half of my conversation with Avery. I’ll air Part 2 in a future episode. Be sure to subscribe or follow the podcast wherever you listen so you don’t miss a thing!

Tired from trying to share your God-inspired message while working your full time job?

Do you wonder if it’s worth it, or even possible, to build a ministry or business on the side?

I have good news for you. It is possible. It is worth it. You can do it.

That’s why I’m glad to share with you the four-part Honor System, to help you honor all the work God has given you to do. These are the hard-earned lessons I’ve taken away from chasing after my dreams and maintaining the career that supports my family.
