Your assertiveness skills in action…

How often do you have a well-planned list of things that you want to accomplish, only to have others’ priorities try to usurp your time?  This is a common and frustrating experience. 

While you can’t eliminate unexpected events and demands, you can use time boundaries to minimize the kinds of interruptions that needn’t be tended to immediately.

Sorting this out is a learning process. The more you practice, the more you learn. And what is key to remember is that you always hold the power of choice.

No one can steal your time.  When you allow someone else to be in the driver’s seat, that is a choice you are making. It may feel difficult,. even uncomfortable, to begin to shift this for yourself. But I can’t emphasize enough how positive and powerful this shift will be for you.

When you truly take in the fact that you are always making your own time choices, you take the reins of your life in a whole new way.
