In this conversation, Carey and I explore the reality that so many of us face in both our personal and professional lives: spending time with the wrong kind of people. We discuss how to notice we’re not helping, how to limit time, and what to do when a conversation needs to happen. Plus, we make the invitation to proactively do what often gets missed: spending time with the right people more consistently.

Key Points

  • The people who want your time are rarely the people who should have your time.
  • Many leaders give too much time and attention away to people who aren’t helped by the interaction.
  • Having a frank conversation with a person who you’re not helping is usually good for both of you.
  • If you’re not able to limit interactions with the wrong kind of person, line up those interactions outside of your key energy times.
  • A key way to do better at limiting time with the wrong people is to affirmatively decide to spend time with the right people.
