Janine is in Walla Walla moving her dad into assisted living, so she didn’t have a spare moment to record an episode. So we’re re-running an episode from August 2020. Enjoy!
Setting boundaries allows you to live a life based on your core values. This week, Shannon and Janine discuss getting in touch with what’s important to you as a way to help you set boundaries that ensure you’re doing the things that align with your why. They use a recent real-life example to illustrate how they recently benefited from boundary setting.
Discussion topics include:
- How it can be hard for people-pleasing perfectionists to set boundaries
- How boundaries can help ensure that you’re doing the thing that most aligns with your why
- The keystone of the getting-to-good-enough mentality: getting in touch with what’s important to you
- How Janine and Shannon harnessed our boundary-setting skills to make an invitation to present together work for us
- Our surprise that there were no objections from the program organizer to our request for an informal presentation
- How strange it feels sometimes to podcast without video
- The many ways it can be useful to get comfortable setting good-enough boundaries
- Getting in touch with what’s important to you as a guideline for setting boundaries
- Letting go of a fear of missing out or disappointing people with your boundaries
- How having boundaries can save you from committing to something you can’t follow through on
- Remembering that when you pass on something you don’t like to do, you’re giving an opportunity to someone who does like to do it
- Considering boundaries as gutter bumpers that keep you headed in the direction you want to go
- Shannon’s sweet spot in bowling (there’s beer involved)
