Episode 12 – (Non) Productivity In the Apocalypse

Karen and Kel talk life in the COVID-19 pandemic: nothing is normal, nobody knows what’s going on, your family has invaded your space, teaching is overwhelming, writing is probably impossible. Accept you don’t have control. You cannot home school your kids, manage online teaching for the first time, sit in quarantine, confront a global pandemic and a sociopathic nightmare in the White House, and then think you’re going to be productive in your work.

Episode 2.16: I Hate My Job! Or Do I?

In this episode we share a 2-part practice from Kel and a saying from Karen’s mom, to help you challenge your toxic relationship to the academy and gain clarity about how best to move forward. Kel tells you how to draw a mental map (or a physical map) of your work spaces so you can check in on your own bodily and emotional reactions to get a more precise sense of where things “hurt” in your job; and then, how to bring in a talisman of joy to remind you that you can feel joy and that you’re entitled to. This 2-part practice helps you reclaim agency vis-a-vis your work and get accuracy about what parts you love or hate and need to change. Then we turn to Karen’s mom’s aphorism: don’t be a victim of your lesser talents. We talk how your view of your talents (ie, skills) can evolve from greater to lesser (and vice versa) as your life values change – and letting them change is the key to moving forward!
