You have to readjust your expectations and make sure that you're in full attunement with what it is that you really want, and the reality of what's required to get that.
Here's a peek into what we discussed:
- The appeal of using Post-It notes for planning due to their flexibility. The method allows for easy adjustments, fostering a mindset that focuses on solutions rather than rigid plans.
