Episode 66: Making Graceful Transitions in Seasons of Change

Are you facing a season of transition? It might a big one, like becoming an empty nester. Or a smaller one, like having kids out of school for the summer. If transitions and changes tend to bring anxiety and discomfort, tune in to Episode 66 of Just One Simple Thing, where you’ll learn four ways to keep things moving forward when life takes you on a detour.

Over the last couple of months, I have had three different clients reach out to me and ask for help navigating a life transition from a time management standpoint.

As I’ve worked with these ladies, I’ve noticed some patterns that seem to pop up as we are moving from one season to another.

Transitions are a special kind of change. Most disruptive changes come up unexpectedly and without a lot of notice. But transitions happen over time and you usually know that they are coming.

If we let the transition sneak up on us, the effect is more like a sudden change. But if we take advantage of the advance notice, we can be more prepared and able to make a graceful transition.

If you are going through a season of transition, here are few things to keep in mind:

1. Adopt an attitude of blessing.
2. Your new season may require a new schedule and priorities.
3. You’ll probably need some new processes and routines.
4. Set aside time to evaluate how things are going.
