Continuing February's theme of relationships, today, Frieda and Anya take a look at the impact our personal relationships (with our friends, our family and our loved ones) have on our lives. Relationships are powerful things: Good and healthy relationships (our assets) support us and gift us with renewed energy. Toxic relationships (our liabilities) empty our energy tank and drain us. Today we look at how to identify the relationships in our lives which are assets and liabilities; how to find a balance between the relationships that drain us and the relationships that support us; and how actively working on our supportive relationships will improve our progress and experience of happiness and fulfilment in our lives.00.25 - our findings from Episode 5's experiment: how we are triggered in toxic situations and strategies we use to cope with them 07.10 - introducing the concept of a system of relationships, transforming relationships from liabilities to assets + an 80-year long study on happiness19.20 - a mini-guided coaching session to help you explore your system of relationships and clarify which are assets and which are liabilities (Frieda bravely volunteered to be coached) 32.15 - hypothesis 32.55 - experiment on exploring your system of relationshipsEXPERIMENT: Click here to report back on the results of your experiment (or copy-paste this in your browser: https://forms.gle/GChc4kJf9wWenf159).

Time management is a highly valued skill in the corporate world. When professionals want to improve, they are told to keep track of their projects, prioritise, delegate, use time management tools to be your most efficient self with a dream to get to the bottom of your to do list (aka Pomodoro method).  In this episode, Frieda and Anya argue that this approach to time management as being more efficient glosses over the most important thing: what are you spending your time on. Time is your biggest asset and it's not only about work, it's about how we choose to spend the 40,000 weeks that we have on this earth. If it resonates with you and you would like to explore your professional and personal growth further, please get in touch: Frieda at <frieda@bravingboundaries.com> and Anya at <anya@anyasmirnova.com>.  Please rate, review and subscribe.   (Thanks to tedefame from Pixabay for the music.)
