06: The Importance of Caring Less About Your Job



Have you ever thought about quitting your job because you were overwhelmed? Throwing in the towel because you had too much to do, and couldn't get it all done? Did you ever consider...caring less? That's quite a radical concept for us HSPs. It goes against everything we feel. We're generally loyal, hard workers who care deeply about what we do. But our conscientiousness can bleed over into perfectionism, and when we can't meet our impossible standards, we'd sometimes rather quit than underperform. In episode 6 of the HSP Podcast, I talk about how caring less can make your job more bearable and won't hurt you as much as you might think.
