S4 Ep12 Tend to What You're

Tolerating featuring

Obehi Alofoje

We’re joined today by Obehi Alofoje. Obehi is a psychologist, stress management consultant, and productivity coach who shares how she’s outgrown two different grinds in her life.

🌱 In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How Obehi was “making do” in her underpaid nonprofit job and feeling guilty about wanting to earn more money
  • The assumption that she’d “always be in the red” because she chose to work in nonprofits
  • Obehi’s process of making peace with her hard-of-hearing status and what her journey to choose to wear hearing aids has been like
  • That the areas where we’re pretending that what we’re tolerating is “enough” is a great place to dig deeper and imagine what else might be possible
  • Obehi’s advice for listeners who are making do in one or more areas of their lives
  • Two reflection questions: 1) Where are you making do in your life and pretending like it’s enough? 1) How would you like it to be instead?

🌱 Seeds planted in this episode:

  • Connect with Obehi on LinkedIn.
  • Completely transform your To Do List so that it reflects what matters most to you AND what brings you energy. Purchase the workshop here.
