We need to stop glamorizing overwork and busyness - please! 

It's nothing to be applauded. Particularly when the consequences are dire. And still too many people wear exhaustion, a fully packed calendar which does not leave any breathing space and even burnout as a badge of honour. 

Why? 

Well, there are a number of factors. Having to do with beliefs we grew up with in our society (and believe me - they are utterly unhelpful!) and because we live in a (working) world where demands are so high that - most of the time - they literally cannot be fulfilled. 

Sounds like a conundrum? Maybe.

You've got the power though - to change it. 

Listen in to this week's Monday thoughts to learn:

Monday thought #11: "Let's talk about boundaries"

Monday thought #11: "Let's talk about boundaries"

We all have them. Some many, some less. Some are very conscious about them (not SOO many though), most only sense them when they are crossed. Some give them a lot of thought, others none. 

Boundaries.

And different people around me react VERY different to this topic. Some believe boundaries are totally overrated, others keep a whole rule book and have not the slightest bit of flexibility. 

Question is though - why do we need them at all?  What's their purpose?

AND - how do I know or explore mine (got a nice and easy tool here).

And if we know them - what do we do with them then...particularly when they are crossed?

And why is it that we let others cross those boundaries? 

Valid questions. And I'm giving it a shot to answer them in this week's Monday Thoughts. 

Let me know what you think and/or if you agree or disagree.

Enjoy!
