Regardless of our status, giving others unlimited access to our days might lead to us being treated like doormats by everybody.
Being mean with our access and generous with our energy, on the contrary, is a strategy worth exploring.
Perhaps the word ‘mean’ is too strong here. But, in any case, each of us will attach our interpretation to it, so maybe it is not a big issue in the context of being mean with our access and generous with our energy.
That said, restricting access to our days, in person or via digital means, ensures we have the opportunity to ‘get things done’ as opposed to just ‘get through the day’.
But once we have decided, or are obliged in certain instances, to give access to someone, being generous with our energy is a powerful approach to life. By connecting with people in this manner, we are demonstrating we value them, without undervaluing ourselves.
Thanks for stopping by here today and please like and share this ‘Being mean with our access and generous with our energy’ post.
