If you see something at work that needs to be done, do you just do it? When someone in your life making the wrong choices or doing bad stuff, do you over function? Is there a thought somewhere in your mind, consciously or not, that if something needs to be done you must be the one to do it or it won’t get done?
Today I’m telling you the signs of over functioning. What does over functioning mean? How do we stop doing it? What is the cost, to you and to your relationships, if you over function?
I hope this episode can educate you about the dangers of over functioning and give you some tools so that you can stop doing it!
