Jun 02, 2023


If you consider yourself a procrastinator, then listen up. On today’s episode, my guest is going to answer the question… what are the four things you need to do when you are too scared to move forward?

The answer is powerful, it involves releasing some mind-body-and physical clutter, and I think it’s going to surprise you.

My guest today is Dr. Christine Li. Christine is a clinical psychologist who has helped thousands of clients and students to recognize the internal and external roadblocks in their way and to overcome them so that they could perform to their potential and with much greater ease and speed.

Christine is the author of "5-Minute Self-Discipline Exercises: Stay Motivated, Cultivate Good Habits, and Achieve Your Goals"; Host of the Make Time for Success Podcast; AND… wait until you hear this… her coaching methodology and work was featured in Oprah's Favorite Things Issue at the end of 2022. And because I’m pretty sure you are wondering… Yes, I do ask her all about that.

I’m excited for you to listen to this interview!


Together, we will unpack:

  • Dr. Christine Li shares advice for those who struggle with clutter and procrastination.
  • The #1 reason why people procrastinate.
  • Understanding the fear of success and how it can stop you.
  • Wait, there's a connection between procrastination and self-esteem?
