Good morning and Happy Monday.
I’m Monica Wofford and this is your Monday Moment.

Saying yes too much has its issues. It has even more issues with leaders, particularly when they are saying yes, instead of no, for reasons outside of their priorities, and without employing even the smallest or simplest of boundaries.

Sign up for your Monday Moments at www.MondayMoment.com

Figuring boundaries out can feel like putting “renovate home” on the weekend to do list, so start with one at a time and make incremental progress.

On the other hand, saying NO too often can also cause other problems. So where’s the middle? Where’s the balance?

It comes from finding out what’s most important. What matters, above all else, to you, the team, the organization, and frankly to your personal life or family, your values and so on. Identifying your personal and professional priorities makes a big difference in how comfortable you are with setting any boundaries. And yet,  figuring all this out can feel like putting renovate home on the weekend to do list, so start with one at a time and make incremental progress.

What is the one thing that must be done the moment you finish listening to this one moment? If someone walks up to you while it’s still pl… like now… what do you say? Just. One. Moment.

THAT is a boundary. So simple. Yet, astounding. Press pause on what’s vying for your attention and stay focused on what has it. It takes practice and more to come on that topic, but for now, don’t make boundaries and your own priorities a big issue. Just. One. Moment. Please. And I’ll be right with you.

I’m Monica Wofford and that’s your Monday Moment.
