Power Talk Friday: Desi Creswell: Leading from Your Future Self
Today with Desi Creswell:
Welcome to A Well Designed Business. If you’re anything like me, you have a neverending to-do list. There’s always something else to get done, another box to check, another urgent task to complete. But when we get bogged down in those tasks, it becomes impossible to work on the business. So how do we motivate ourselves to take a step back and work on the higher level needs? Interior Design Coach Desi Creswell shares her framework for getting big tasks done, even if it feels like you’ll never be able to.
Pick it apart:
- [2:52] Desi talks about what a balanced business looks like and how we stop ourselves from building one.

- [45:08] LuAnn and Desi talk about how to keep yourself committed to tasks even when you don’t want to do them.
- [52:05] Desi shares the importance of evaluating yourself with curiosity to see why something isn’t getting done.
