#9 - Breaking Toxic Work Patterns for the Self-Employed with Casey The Rulebreaker Podcast

    • Entrepreneurship

Just because you leave a toxic work culture, doesn’t mean it leaves you. I learned this the hard way, over and over again before earlier this year when I said NO MORE.
I see so many entrepreneurs working themselves to bone, pushing themselves straight toward burn out and while I don’t know if burnout is avoidable, I do know that you can break your own toxic work patterns to start producing your best work and living your best life like RIGHT NOW.
 
I’m so passionate about this subject because these patterns held me back from living my best life for too long and I really don’t want that to happen to you. 
 
These are 5 toxic habits I’ve experienced and how I turn them around. 
 
Toxic Habit #1: You Value Money more than Time
MANTRA: Saying no to more work is saying YES to myself.
 
Toxic Habit #2: You Won’t Outsource because it’s something you’re able to do
MANTRA: Just because I can doesn’t mean I have to.
 
Toxic Habit #3: You Have No Boundaries
MANTRA: Boundaries aren’t for keeping things or people out, they are for keeping joy IN.
 
Toxic Habit #4: You Don’t Take Time Off. Or if you do, you feel guilty about it.
MANTRA: Rest is productive.
 
Toxic Habit #5: You Don’t Set and Commit to Deadlines
MANTRA: I trust myself to commit to living my best life.
