How Busy People Do Big Things

Mary Katharine Ham and Kelly Maher are constantly doing big things—opening farms, running marathons, raising children… but they also naturally procrastinate on things like… taxes and paperwork. How do they balance it out—and how have they overcome their hilariously-unproductive 20s? This joyous confessional episode will either motivate you… or make you feel like you really have your life together.

    Great podcast both of you. I hate being a procrastinator and have gotten a little bit better as I’m older but still do it too much. Sigh.

    Sheer brilliance . . .

    I had to stop this podcast to schedule an electrician, make an appointment for kid’s driving lesson and driver’s test. These things have been on my task list for a month. Literally took 10 minutes. Now they are DONE. So thanks for that, ladies.

    On the other hand, despite the fact that I hate running, I did complete my first 1/2 marathon (Disney) last year just before I turned 46, first marathon (Twin Cities) at 47 last month, doing the Disney marathon in Jan. Hired an online coach to get me through because we’ve been married waaayyy too long for my husband to agree to be my accountability partner! ;).

    Yes, I did finish listening. Wishing everyone good luck in the mail battle!

    I love listening to y’all talk about how much you’re alike… I believe MK said she’s an Enneagram 7 at one point, and I’m guessing Kelly is, too… and so am I! Sevens are the best! Haha. But it’s fun hearing your conversation and seeing so many “seven” type traits come up and relating to them.
