Episode 51 of The Get More Podcast

Today we are wrapping up Accountability Month with the final element in the Bare Slate Accountability Success Formula and it's all about Capacity.

"Capacity is the maximum amount that something can contain", and this includes you!

Just like putting on that oxygen mask, you need to help yourself first when it comes to your capacity to handle everyday situations, circumstances, and decisions.

One thing that leads to being at capacity is the tendency to overcommit yourself and take on too much - you literally have no room left to take on even one more small thing.

Why do we do this?

We may think that we 'have' to do the thing, or attend that event or meeting, or take on that project, or try and help everyone!

An excellent example of this is People Pleasing, or "Nice Guy Syndrome".

We think it's rude or 'not nice' to say no to others and to additional commitments (and this can include our perceived need to help others).

As we like to say, "Don't make your problem, my problem!" which essentially means that you don't have to take on the problems of the world when you have your own to deal with.

We have an excellent exercise in the Get More Membership called the People Pleaser Scorecard which helps you identify where you are taking on more than you should and setting yourself up to reach capacity.

Go here to check out the Membership (and the Scorecard) today!
