One of my coachees had this urge to know about everything that happened around him. In his life. In his children’s school. In the lives of his relatives and friends. About what each of his team members did every minute at work. He said it gave him a sense of control. The more he did this, the more it upset him when he missed out on any information, even if it was of no consequence to him. His stress levels increased and he blamed people around him for the same. This further strained his relationships.
Are you living or working with someone similar?
How much do you “need to know”? Is it spiking your anxiety levels? Can you let go and start enjoying the flow of life?
