Before deciding whether or not to do something it’s worth asking yourself if it is worth the hassle.
Sometimes, we jump in head first because we think we should do something or we feel like we’re supposed to do it.
Instead, I think it’s much more helpful to assess if it’s something that even needs to be done. The last thing you want is to out of your way or go above and beyond for something that you don’t consider worth it or something you will regret agreeing to.
An example could be agreeing to help someone when you’re already busy. Something like that is rarely worth the hassle and being considered helpful for taking on too much and exhausting yourself probably won’t make it any more worth it.
