Are people holding you back from building your future?
Are your friends and family taking more than they are giving?
Do you need to set boundaries but feel guilty?
Working on your future involves managing relationships. Over the next couple of weeks I will be discussing:
- How I allocate time to certain people in my life (Your Top 5)
- How I look at Mankind (Having Compassion)
- Setting boundaries
After this series it is my hope that you can:
- Stay calm when dealing with people who frustrate you
- Reduce guilt from not having time for everyone
- Get closer to reaching your ideal present and future self
Your Top 5
In 2018, most humans have to pay for food and shelter. Some might not if they live in a home their family owns, or receive government assistance. In general, having to pay for food and shelter keeps me at a 9 out of 10 stress levels at all times. Not to mention my time is 9/10 taken up by doing these activities. This doesn’t count meals, taking care of my body, my home, and my finances. There might be one hour / day that isn’t allocated to one of the above tasks. Some of those hours are nice spent alone. That means the 3-10 hours / week you have to spend with friends and / or family you have pick and chose which can be stressful. A conversation with your family about this can help immensely. If they truly have your best interest at heart, they will understand and support you. Not everyone will. And that’s when you have to choose your top 5. It’s much deeper than the “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with” motivational quote most speakers use. It’s survival. So how do you do it?
Stay tuned for next week when I discuss how I pick who has VIP access to my time and attention while I work hard to support myself and build my future.
