I mowed their lawn and enjoyed it

Nate (my husband) and I spent Saturday at his parent’s house doing chores.

Well, Nate did a majority of the chores.

The chore that I did do was mowing the lawn.

Mowing lawns is something that I detest, and it’s also something I enjoy. It depends on how it’s done.

Detest: Push mowing.
Enjoy: Riding lawn mower.

My sister was the opposite. She preferred using the push mower. It worked out well for us as teens mowing our large yard and our older neighbor’s also large yard.

Thankfully, mowing my in-laws’ lawn involved a riding lawn mower.

Now, I’m sure you’re wondering, why I’m sharing this with you… what’s the tie in with my business?

Is there a task in your business that you HATE? Something that you just can’t stand and want to put off or ignore altogether?

Maybe you don’t have the right tool to do the task.


That’s all I wrote yesterday.

Call it writer’s block, being stuck, or something else. A topic for a 15-30 minute Wednesday LIVE with Evie wasn’t showing itself from that story.

Then last night I was at a networking event, chatting with someone in my productivity course that started last week.

She shared that the first class was HUGE for her (where I shared about how to create, manage, and tweak your to-do lists).

The fun part was that she knew the basics of what I was teaching. She’d tried to do it before and it wasn’t working (her version of my push mower).

But I shared an approach she hadn’t tried before and she was SO EXCITED to get started with it (her version of my riding lawn mower).

So, I ask you again, slightly differently: is there a something in your business that just isn’t working? You’ve tried and tried and it just isn’t working for you?

Maybe you need a new approach.

So, let’s talk about that.

For this week’s Wednesday LIVE with Evie, let’s talk about What’s not working and new approaches. Check out the Facebook event here for more information.

Update: You can watch this Wednesday LIVE with Evie here.

  1. Thanks for your lovely experience sharing. I am also love mowing. It is delightful to me. I am always mowing in my garden very first morning. I enjoyed doing this work.

  2. It’s funny knowing there’s someone in this world wants to ride a mower, I did it when I was a kid, but to do it at my age? No way!
