    Becoming Toxic Person Proof with Sarah K Ramsey

    Becoming Toxic Person Proof with Sarah K Ramsey

    Toxic people talk you out of listening to your intuition. They talk you out of seeing the red flags and make you feel like you are overreacting when you notice odd behavior. They talk you out of believing yourself and teach you to believe their lies instead. How do they do it? Why do we believe them? And, why do so many good people end up in bad situations?⁣


    Today I’m talking to Sarah K Ramsey who is the best-selling author of the book Becoming Toxic Person Proof: Clear the Confusion and Learn to Trust Yourself. She is the host of the Toxic Person Proof podcast which reaches thousands of listeners around the world. She has a new podcast Problem Solved, Decision Made which breaks down the concepts presented in her newest book Problem Solved: Simple Solutions for Complex Problems available September 2022.⁣

    Doing Deep Work: How To Keep Shallow Distractions From Stealing Your Life

    Doing Deep Work: How To Keep Shallow Distractions From Stealing Your Life

    Much of your daily life is spent doing shallow work- the everyday maintenance of life. This is necessary and good work, but it is not your most important work.

    In accomplishing shallow tasks, you feel like you're getting a lot done and you are, but shallow work can easily take over your entire life. Years pass, without a realization that you are putting out surface fires. 

    Deep work is described as “activities performed in a state of distraction-free concentration that push your cognitive capabilities to their limit.”

    In this episode, I discuss Cal Newton's concept of Deep Work and provide tips on how you can integrate deep thinking in a busy life to increase health in your relationship with yourself and others.
     
    Book mentioned:
    Deep Work by Cal Newport

    How Well Do You Know Yourself?

    How Well Do You Know Yourself?

    Take the quiz: HERE

    You may spend significant time investing in knowing the people you are in relationship with.

    You may know your people well, but how much time do you spend getting to know yourself?

    Often, the assumption is that if you spend enough time with someone, you will know them.

    The truth is that you can spend a lifetime living in the same home with someone and never know them at all. The same goes for you. You can spend a lifetime in your skin and never get to know yourself.

    Listen in as I share some insightful questions that you should be able to easily answer about yourself if you know yourself well.
