Becky and Diana explore the correlation between being open to different options and our ability to move through tough situations. 

  • Leaving room to find other options is the true test of a growth mindset.
  • When considering other options we need to focus on what we want to accomplish the most.
  • Being immersed in a situation makes it hard for us to see our options.
  • We don’t have control of every situation, but we do have control of our response to them.
  • Three beliefs that can keep us stuck are personalization, pervasiveness, and permanence.
  • Radical self-forgiveness reminds us that we did the best we could with what we had in each situation we found ourselves in.
  • There is always room for other options.
  • Just because a situation is negative doesn’t mean there can’t be positive outcomes.
  • We are more than what happens to us.
  • We can’t force change.

Becky and Diana discuss how taking vacations improves our body, mind, soul, and even our productivity! 

  • We like to believe we are irreplaceable.
  • When we are drained we cannot serve our constituents as a whole person.
  • We live in a society that believes every moment must be filled with activity.
  • We have to carve out the space to take breaks.
  • Taking breaks allows us to release ourselves from our responsibilities on our terms – before we fall apart.
  • Everyone finds rejuvenation in their own way.
  • Breaks allow us to make room for new things.
  • Things we didn’t even know we need can come to us both during and following a break.
  • Vacation vs Trip. Vacation: We let go of our core responsibilities. Trip: Same stuff, different location.
  • We can intentionally schedule vacation moments into a trip.

Becky and Diana discuss the perils and pitfalls of not trusting what you know.

  • At some point we have to stop learning and start doing.
  • We can fill our heads with so much information that there’s no room for a solution to appear.
  • Sometimes just making a decision, whether it’s right or wrong, allows us to move forward.
  • When we trust ourselves to make decisions we instinctively make better ones.
  • Sometimes we just need a knowledge detox.
  • Decision fatigue can be managed by creating habits.
  • We can give ourselves permission to decide what is right, right now.
  • We need to appreciate and acknowledge what we have done.
  • A vision becomes a habit when we decide to follow through on it.
  • The only person responsible for deciding where you go is you.

Becky and Diana navigate the sticky subject of money. 

  • There are a lot of social taboos around money.
  • Rules about talking about money change constantly.
  • When we are dismissive of money we are disrespecting it.
  • Money is often a major stressor.
  • How do we talk about money ourselves?
  • Do we talk about money? Do we talk about it from the perspective of never having enough or having plenty?
  • Knowing how to earn money and how to manage money are not the same thing.
  • When we’re looking for a job, we should be aware of each company’s attitude towards money. Does it align with our attitude?
  • Emotions and money go hand in hand.
  • Money is just one currency that has value.
  • Always be actively grateful for the money you have.
