Hi Rachel and Kristen!

It was relieving to find out my values as a Thriver. I kept saying to people “Working 40hours a week doesn’t seem like a quality life” and everyone thought I was crazy. My mom is a huge firestarter; working 80hours a week and having a passion. I always wondered why I wasn’t like her, why i couldn’t understand why she worked weekends, why i couldn’t find MY passion. This course really helped me understand myself and how I have different values than my mom, ESPECIALLY time.

Currently I work in a 40 hour week job that is constantly busy. I am financially ready and able to cut my hours down to 32 hours a week. Can you give me some tips or advise on how to ask my manager to let me work less even though the workload is consistently busy?
