Overwhelmed with all the Communications Channels…
I’m feeling a certain kind of way about the demands of all my communications channels… Overwhelmed mostly, and wondering: do I really have to respond? Do I want to be the girl that is always responsive or do I want to become someone who is less responsive?
Meaghan helps me with prioritization and boundary setting to reclaim my time:
- Income-generating activities demand immediate responses
- Incorporate office hours / office hours to communicate expectations with people who expect responses from us
- Close friend and family
- Entertainment, when time allows!
To not look like a rude-ass-bitch to my non-iWatch sensitized friends, I’ve also updated my wrist notifications and am getting in the practice of putting on DND when I am meeting with someone…
I am exploring the kind of communicator I am, evaluating my energy management in the context of my communications, and also practicing “detachment with love” for those energy investments that don’t generate a positive return on investment.
Shout out also to my brother Julien for teaching me how to communicate in a circle of really important people, and on Twitter. I know how you work Bou and you inspire me with it. Je t’aime.
Finally, I’m taking control of how I want to be communicated to.
Here are the best ways to reach me:
- For business: email and LinkedIn
- Friend and family: text and WhatsApp
- Entertainment: Instagram
