Anyone else constantly looking for that one thing that will pull everything together? Hoping that the next course or tool will unlock the secrets that you are missing? I am completely guilty of this. I currently have at least three workshops I have not finished. They are amazing workshops that offer so much value but I am hiding from them. Maybe I’m afraid that they will change my life. Maybe I just keep forgetting they even exist. Maybe I just over committed to too many different things and I need to cut myself some slack. 😂
I’ve been setting new boundaries for myself this past month. One of them is that when an event is no longer serving me, I’m free to leave. I can not tell you how many hours of my life I have wasted staying in a class after I’ve gotten the value I needed because I didn’t want to make the teacher feel bad. Actually, the teacher was doing an amazing job because I absorbed the information quickly and was able to start applying it.
Why is it considered rude to leave a zoom or an event when you are ready to? (I don’t mean getting up and yelling peace out bitches in the middle of a lesson. But there are polite, quiet ways to exit a space that don’t disturb anyone.) Seriously, there have even been moments where I don’t want to skip to the next YouTube video as if the creator has any clue that I only watched 64% of it. 🤦♀️
I have a limited attention span and not enough time to read the forty paragraphs before the recipe on the blog. So I’m scrolling ahead and skipping.
I guess my new boundary is to do more Irish Goodbyes. 😂 Here is the last apology I am going to make for honoring my time. I am sorry if I slip out quietly sometimes. I have too many things to do and not nearly enough hours in the day. It’s not personal.
Honor your time because it is your most precious resource.
