Ep110 Show Notes: Three Little Words
About This Episode
How much of your energy do you expend rescuing others? Putting out fires? Being the hero? It can feel virtuous and purposeful to be “The Fixer,” but it’s also draining your valuable introvert energy. There’s another way to support and empower others without sacrificing yourself. In this episode, I share my most popular post to-date, along with some new insights and responses from readers.
Key Episode Points
- The unpredictability of catchy or catatonic content
- How social media can be as draining as happy hour networking
- Not giving away our power to the nay-sayers
- How to tell if you’re an enabler
- How to combat the impulse to always swoop in to save the day
- What others are doing to empower their families and colleagues
