TGGC #80: Taking a humane approach to personal growth with Sarah Kathleen Peck

Sarah Kathleen Peck is a writer, teacher, and connector. She writes a popular newsletter about about personal development, behavior change, and leadership.

She's currently writing a book called Startup Pregnant about how working in tech while pregnant opened her eyes to new ways of doing message.

Sarah and I had a conversation that left me absolutely buzzing. We share some real talk about pregnancy and early motherhood. We also chat about the need for multiple ways of showing up for work and life - rather than pushing all of the time, the need to be more intentional and precise with our language and commitments, and grieving even positive life changes.

 

In this episode we talk about:

  • How having a child forced Sarah into a more structured routine
  • Taking a sane, humane approach to changing patterns and forming habits
  • Grieving happy life changes
  • The monthly report Sarah creates for herself and how she chooses her monthly mantra 
  • Using doodling as a meditation practice and finding other ways to quiet the mind
  • Startup Pregnant, the book Sarah is currently writing
  • The need for multiple ways of showing up for work and life - rather than pushing all of the time
  • The need to be more intentional and precise with our language and commitments
  • The difference between “nice” and “kind"
