Seasonal planning is an incredibly efficient, though potentially underutilized approach to productivity. Using the seasons within our lives to choose what’s best for us not only helps us manage our energy, it gives us built-in permission to embrace variety and keep things interesting. This week, episode 160 of the Positively Living Podcast is about seasonal planning for neurodiverse entrepreneurs!

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Erik Fisher shares his productivity wisdom on why seasonal planning works for us, especially those of us who are multi-passionate and neurodiverse, and gives you actionable steps to take right now to accept change as it comes and embrace this seasonal planning approach. 

Erik and I cover the following topics:

  • What seasonality means and some of the different kinds of seasons we may go through in our lives. 
  • The ways in which seasons can encourage us to embrace change. 
  • Proactively planning for the seasons of your life as a form of energy management.
  • Simple ways to start seasonal planning through bucket lists and mentally decluttering. 

There is never going to be a time where you’re not doing things so it’s about adapting a natural cycle to balance your seasons out and avoiding burnout in the long run.
