Episode Notes

In this episode of the Shift Happens podcast, hosts Robin McIntire, a certified life and transitions coach, and Monique Eckes, discuss the seemingly counterintuitive concept of ‘slowing down to go fast’. They delve into how to get out of autopilot and make thoughtful choices by shifting from ‘have to’ energy to ‘get to’ energy. Through practical examples and personal anecdotes, they illustrate the importance of grounding oneself, practicing self-awareness, and maintaining a calm mindset to make better, more productive decisions.

The episode includes a sponsor break promoting Robin’s ‘Grind vs Flow’ freebie and wraps up with concrete action steps and mantras to integrate these ideas into daily life.
