How do you make plans when no one knows?

  • We recorded this in May. It’s interesting/sad how the things we talked about still apply in February.
  • Diana says she has had a hard time lately because she had planned on a lot of travel and connecting during this time in her life. She has been forced to reimagine her life and has received a lot of pushback from her own bad self, causing a massive internal struggle. 
  • Becky discusses how incredibly difficult it is to plan anything at all. 
  • The realization for all of us that this new way of living isn’t temporary is discussed. Becky and Diana talk about the uncertainty of the future makes everything harder. And the talk about why it’s necessary to trust our guts.
  • Becky speaks on the idea of creating a container around a decision that determines when you’ll revisit it.
  • Here’s how it works: make the best decision you can with the information you have at hand, and then come back to it in a fixed number of weeks. In between the time you make the decision and the time you’ve set to revisit it, you avoid second guessing it and worrying about it.
  • When you create the container, it helps you avoid decision fatigue.
  • Going with the flow requires constant reassessment. 
  • Diana contemplates getting a dog.
  • The hardships around wearing masks is discussed as well as the real reason we wear them: to protect those around us. 
  • Becky describes her COVID safe back hug! Definitely try this at home!
