The Boundaries.Me Podcast: Pat Lencioni - Boundaries Around What Matters MostMar 12, 2020
What matters most to you? This is often the first place to start when we begin creating boundaries in our lives.
In this episode of Dr. Henry Cloud’s Boundaries.Me podcast, Pat Lencioni shares with us his story of creating a boundary around prioritizing his family. He’s discovered that boundaries start with his family, and that if work or other relationships begin to take precedent, he suffers. Ironically, he’s found that by keeping his time with his family sacred, he’s more efficient at work, sees increased productivity, and has healthier relationships overall. Pat says the boundary isn’t necessarily about time, but the emphasis is around prioritizing his family’s needs and the role he plays in their life to serve them. Having this boundary, he says, gives him peace.
So, consider this: Boundaries do us no good if they’re not maintained. If you make a boundary with the emotional consequences in mind, you’ll feel when it’s in need of attention.
