Heads up: this episode of the podcast is coming to you from a bubble bath in California, ’cause inspiration struck.
Lots of us do invisible work and then resent the crap out of people who fail to see it.
In this episode of That’s What She Said, we talk about making your work visible. Even your boring work, your dull work, your everyday work, and the work you’re sure you’ll be stuck doing until the end of time.
What if we made our internal checklists visible to other humans?
What if we changed up the ‘just shut up and be a martyr’ pattern and instead, asked for help?
What if we asked for people to acknowledge our completed tasks, to-do lists, and the many items we accomplish on a daily basis?
Once we tackle small to-do’s and offload tiny tasks, we can build up to asking for help for big and/or important tasks. Like parenting. Like entrepreneurship. Like being human.
Then, we move on to actually showing your work to other humans instead of minimizing it, pretending it doesn’t matter, or turning it into an albatross that causes you to hate everyone in your life.
One step outside of the domestic world, there’s the career-related behind-the-scenes work you complete and don’t share.
For example: breathwork is the energetic reset-slash-scrub down practice I do on a regular basis, and I trained in both New York City and Los Angeles to become a practitioner in 2017, with more trainings coming up this year. Work. Made. Visible. You can take a class here, schedule a 1-on-1 session here, or learn more about breathwork itself here.
You’ve got behind-the-scenes work, too.
Whether it’s editing video, shooting images, writing copy, making art, holding workshops, planning, prepping, and/or training, it’s time to let your peeps know that secret, private, or often-minimized work happens, and to make it more and more visible.
Listen in to get started, to stop resenting your family members and/or loved ones, and to dig deeper into exactly how much you accomplish on a daily basis. HINT: IT’S SO MUCH.
