Episode 10: Stop the Tyranny of Urgency

In our last episode, you met Dr. Shannan Crawford, licensed psychologist and CEO of Crawford Clinics, and also the host of the podcast Unlock U. We covered how setting boundaries can help you stop saying “yes” when you should be learning to say “no” to more things, and we walked through the first two steps Dr. Crawford suggested anyone takes when setting up boundaries in their life. 

In this episode, Dr. Crawford and host, Jordan Johnstone, walk their way through the last two steps in the boundary-setting process, and also talk about working through the possible “fear of missing out” feelings you may battle when you start flexing your new “say no” muscles.
