How to stop Self-Sabotaging
99u pressed a great article on how to “get out of your head and into action”. I have a tendency to be very hard on myself by relentlessly hanging onto dreams of where I could be and neglecting how far I’ve come. Here are some ways I have found useful to moving forward both at and away from my workplace.
- Take ownership, and stop the blame game
- Acknowledge avoidance and focus on moving forward
- Chunk your tasks into smaller steps
- Enlist cheerleaders
- De-prioritize results and acknowledge progress
