Join me in celebrating our 300th episode 🎊with a very special guest. Joining me today is New York Times bestselling author Eve Rodsky. Her book Fair Play: A Game-Changing Solution for When You Have Too Much to Do (and More Life to Live), walks us through a system for couples seeking balance, efficiency, and peace in their home. Her book was endorsed by Reese Witherspoon’s book club and has been turned into a documentary, called Fair Play, (available on Apple TV or Amazon Prime) which I highly encourage you to watch.
During our conversation, we unpack a very real problem that many of us suffer from: TIME POVERTY.
Eve walks us through her personal story about being overworked, under appreciated, and shares the moment she recognized that something had to change.
What started as a simple spreadsheet titled “Invisible Sh*t I do” has resulted in a movement to help rebalance the division of labor inside our homes.
The mental load that many of us carry is what feeds into fatigue, frustration, and ultimately resentment towards our partners, roommates, and even our kids. In the midst of chaos, our health suffers, our relationships suffer and our homes suffer-but trust me, it doesn’t have to be that way.
- We talked about how to stop being CIYOO (Complicit In Your Own Oppression)
- Setting Boundaries, Systems, and the importance of Communication
- Why having an “Ownership Mindset” is far more effective than giving someone a “To-Do List”
Eve’s no-nonsense approach is much like mine, which is probably why we got along so well!
Whether you are partnered or not, have three children or none, or whether your work is paid or unpaid, the message applies to you.
