I mentioned my new-found love of Podcasts at the end of last month, with one of my favourites being Happier with Gretchen Rubin and her sister Elizabeth Craft.
I’m currently a week behind, and am now eager to head to bed to listen to last Wednesday’s episode.
Why? Because it is about me.
Well, not me specifically, but me in the sense of Ms Rubin’s Four Tendencies Framework. I’m really curious to hear what the ladies have to say in this episode, because it was so obvious which of the four general types of people I was going to fall in to.
I’m the ultimate Obliger. Most of the time. Sometimes I don’t even meet outer expectations! <gasp>
So it is with some interest I am planning on listening to the advice and suggestions about maximising this tendency’s good points and minimising it’s down side. Anything to stop me having to berate myself for having no willpower when it’s something for me!! Then I’ll head off to read the full deal in her new book Better than Before which I purchased as a Kindle book a couple of months ago.
If you’re curious about the Four Tendencies there is a test you can take, but it is most likely that you will recognise yourself from the descriptions first anyway. If you do take the test, come back and let me know which category you fall in to – and don’t forget to listen to the podcast about your type.
As for me, it’s time to go listen and then work out some accountability systems to get those internal expectations met and those habit changes firmly in place!
Happy listening !
