Dealing With Uptight People

“Motivation and Encouragement” Podcast Episode 20: Dealing with Uptight People

When was the last time you had to deal with a really, really uptight person? Someone so rigid in their thinking that it made them difficult to be around or work with? Maybe it was a friend, significant other, boss, or co-worker. Or maybe *you’re* that person.

Inflexible ways of thinking and behaving can limit our effectiveness at work, undermine our friendships, and keep us from being truly close to our loved ones.

In this episode, Athena and Debbi look at uptight thinking, where it comes from, what it costs us, and how to deal with it in others and in ourselves. Along the way, they share stories about Disneyland anxiety, flammable Pop Tarts, and dangerous avocados.
