“Not everyone’s feedback is equal.”

We all need feedback to progress in many areas of our lives. But some types of feedback are better than others. Knowing what feedback to use and which to let go will save you from being overwhelmed by feedback.

You may have desired reassurance about something and ended up with a complete critique of your work.

The truth is, many people have no business speaking into our lives.   They haven’t earned the right to give feedback.

Kathi and Overwhelmed co-author, Cheri Gregory discuss the various types of feedback and how to deal with each. They also provide a graphic feedback filter to help you determine what kind of feedback you desire and/or receive.

  3. Clutter Decides You Have Not Earned A Future – Because you have failed with various endeavors in the past, you won’t be good at something in the future. So yu are stuck in your current situation.  Clutter says you don’t deserve to move forward.

Have you endured the Christmas Party where someone just pushes your buttons and you want to scream? Or the family dinner where Aunt Myrtle points out all the things wrong?   We all have challenging people in our lives.  Sometimes we can be the challenge. This is when a people plan can help.

Pre-deciding how we will behave when we are in those challenging situations helps us be the best person we can be.

Kathi and Overwhelmed co-author, Cheri Gregory, discuss various situations where a “people plan” can turn challenging events into less overwhelming situations.

People Plan Options

In this podcast, they talk about three options that can help you when it comes to pre-deciding how you will behave:

  1. Personal Manifesto – Creating a “personal manifesto” sets up a code of ethics that helps you pre-decide what you need and want and how to ask for it. (Kathi and Cheri’s manifesto can be viewed here)
  2. Acknowledgment – Acknowledge a pattern and discuss it.  Perhaps the person is willing to change or you can change your reaction to their actions.
  3. Leave – Don’t subject yourself to disrespectful behavior.

Kathi and Cheri run through multiple scenarios to help you pre-plan your responses and help you deal with the overwhelm.
