TCF910: Setting Your Boundaries

Do you sometimes feel like you are taken advantage of or stressed because you don’t want to say no to a client or someone else? It can be hard, but setting clear boundaries is really important for reducing stress and standing up for yourself. Tim and Derek talk about setting boundaries with clients, family, and friends. They discuss why boundaries matter, how to establish them, and the courage it takes to stick to them. 

In this episode, they discuss:

  • The importance of setting boundaries in personal and professional life
  • The time when Tim almost lost money by underestimating a landscaping job cost
  • Setting a boundary with yourself to not be crossed
  • Working to get better at setting boundaries instead of avoiding confrontations
  • Using tactical empathy to respond thoughtfully instead of reacting when boundaries are tested
  • Respectfully setting boundaries while also validating other people’s feelings
