Boundaries

If we set boundaries, people will meet them.

I’ve been slowing things way down in my business this year. Everything out of necessity.

I stopped taking on new clients in December. And now I’m experimenting with new guidelines to free up time, energy, and bandwidth.

I asked one client if he was okay if we went from two sessions a month to one. He was fine with it.

I told my weekend clients I’d no longer be doing calls on Sundays. They were fine with it.

When people ask me for a call past 3pm, under no circumstances do I accept. I also have a maximum of three sessions per day. No more.

What shocks me every time is how okay with these boundaries people are. Most people are willing to do most things, we just have to ask for what we want.

But we have to ask.
