Sarah Leitschuh’s Story

When Sarah started her private practice she realized that she was struggling to do too much at once, this happened to coincide with becoming a parent the second time around. Sarah was trying to figure out how she could be the best parent, wife and all the other roles she had outside of the therapy office, but also show up how she wanted to in her business and really build a thriving therapy practice.

How To Do Less But Keep Things Going

It wasn’t a natural ‘aha’. I was rolling along feeling like I was going all the time. All of a sudden I realized that this isn’t something that I wanted.

Sarah had to get really clear on what her priorities were and made sure to set aside time for things that were important to her and letting go of things that weren’t important to her.

Traps People Fall Into

  • Comparing ourselves to others
  • Having unrealistic expectations of themselves

Finding Balance

Be really purposeful in how you spend your time.

You should pick and choose 1 or 2 areas that you’re going to focus on at a time and work really hard in those areas so that it doesn’t feel like you’re hustling all the time.

Losing Focus

If I don’t prioritize checking in with my goals it will be easy for me just to go to my to-do list and run through all of those things and totally lose sight of my bigger vision.

Part of losing focus is not regularly being in check with your goals. It’s easy to set up goals and jump right into it, but at some point, you burn yourself out. There should be slow and steady progress and checking in on a weekly basis.

How to Do It All Without Doing It All

  • Start with a big picture vision of where you want to be in your business in 6 months/1 year
  • Break it down into actionable steps month to month
  • Map out your time week by week for each of those areas of priority
