Busy executives with high expectations assume others think the same way as them.

They will text you early in the morning and late at night expecting an immediate response. They will walk over to you and ask you questions when you’re working on something, and expect you to drop what you are doing without hesitation.

They have an agenda and they don’t care about yours.

For the most part, they are just impatient – and whatever they need can usually wait 24 hours.

So whose responsibility is it to set the boundaries?

Yours. It requires the bravery to push back.

Otherwise, you will continue to live your life on someone else’s terms.

Be brave.
