Dealing with Overwhelm
6 days ago
“Money comes and goes, but time only goes.” –Lee Cockerell Great Escape Radio Host, Jody Maberry brings time management guru, Lee Cockerell back to the show. Recently Lori Allen surveyed several members of Great Escape Publishing to ask them what their biggest challengers were. Two common themes emerged: not enough time and feeling overwhelmed. As the former Executive Vice President of Walt Disney World Resorts, Lee knows a thing or two about getting things done—and he has the same 24 hours in a day that we do. Over the years Lee taught his time management strategies to his employees at Marriott and at Walt Disney World. “We all have many responsibilities—maybe more than we realize,” says Lee. “If we don’t take care of our responsibilities by planning for them, it will catch us by surprise and becomes a crisis.” Juggling too many responsibilities and feeling overwhelmed creates stress and that can result in anxiety and depression. Listen in as he shares his thoughts on the importance of planning and the importance of having a system in place. Lee’s time management tips are outlined in his book, Time Management Magic: How to Get More Done Every Day and Move From Surviving to Thriving. You can find the book along with Lee’s videos, podcasts and the Morning Magic Planner at LeeCockerell.com. Lee says, “it’s time to get started.” If you’re interested in getting started in travel writing visit www.greatescapepublishing.com/start/travelwriting to learn more about it.

Rated 5 out of
I just spent about 5 Hours straight Listening!
WOW!!! I am very excited to have found this podcast!. I am currently a member of the travel writers program and digging through the wealth of quality material inside. Some great stuff. I found the podcast through that and I am so glad that I did.
I travel a lot by RV and on a commute from Las Vegas to Palm Springs today I plugged in the podcast thinking I would listen to one or two episodes then switch to an audiobook. I ended up listing for the ENTIRE 5 HOUR TRIP!!!
I couldn't get enough. Each episode was filled with a fun light-hearted feel and positive/motivating content. Each new guest, idea, tip, strategy, and story took my mind on a journey across the planet in excitement for my own travel adventures.
If you are looking for a podcast that will get you excited for what is possible in the world for travelers, dreamers, entrepreneurs, wanderlusters, photographers, and writers then listen to the stories from the people they interview in these episodes.
I promise you that it will get you get you excited about your next trip abroad or even your next trip to the grocery store. These past 5 hours have shown me that even the little trips we take can be some of the best fuel for creation and publication.
Thank you Great Escape for making a great podcast and even better programs.
