We are all busy, this is just part of life today. Nevertheless, attempting to be everything to everyone and refusing to admit ‘that one extra task’ we say ‘yes’ to may throw our schedule off track, place additional stress on our shoulders.
However, as we jump from one urgent item to another, our objectives fall further down our to-do list. Being less to be more, on the other hand, involves us turning down assignments and speaking up to utter a categorical ‘no’ when it is needed.
Yes, we will upset those people who are accustomed to dropping their problems on us. Refusing the role of Indispensable Jane or Joe takes practice, even if such a position is not in our job description. Being less to be more of who we are is uncomfortable initially, yet is an act of authenticity.
If exploring the issue of being less to be more as part of a coaching conversation sounds interesting, get in contact.
