It turns out, that it doesn’t have to be as complicated or boring as it seems.
Today’s guest describes herself as “a naturally Type B person” who much prefers to fly be the seat of her pants. Once she became a mother, she figured out that wasn’t the best approach, but still struggled and resisted routines.
That was until she discovered Keystone Habits.
