Welcome back to another episode of Foot Traffic! If you know me, you know I am a productivity nerd and a systems girl. I’m really excited to be interviewing Tonya Dalton today who is the founder of inkWELLPress Productivity Company and the author of her book, The Joy of Missing Out. Today we’re talking about that concept both personally and in our business. When should we say yes and how we often throw things on our calendars that we shouldn’t. There are so many things out there and we have to decide when to say yes and when to say no. Let’s dive in!

“I believe the book is more than a book. It’s the start of a movement…” At minute 2:33, hear what made Tonya write her book, The Joy of Missing Out and how it came to be. Plus, we’re talking about how we hide behind the word ‘busy’.

“It’s really easy for ‘yes’ to slip out of our mouths..” At 7:18, we dive into a concept I learned from Tonya about the number of Friday’s you have left  and how that has changed her and her family. I ask her how she finds balance, what questions to ask and the boundaries we should put in place to assess if it’s something we should move froward with.

“We chase this illusion of balance and it truly does not exist…” At minute 18:16, we’re talking about putting quantity over quality. Are you doing things with intention? Hear what routines, both personal and business, have been a game changer for Tonya.

“We believe that periods of rest are a reward for great work but it’s actually a requirement…” At 28:27, a reminder of why taking time to rest and recharge is so important and why we are worn out and exhausted. Plus, hear what tools Tonya uses to keep all of her systems organized.
