This week, my goal was to get ahead at work. Recently I've been feeling like I am playing from behind. This feeling almost always leads to anxiety, frustration, and a lack of creativity for me. Today, even though it was only supposed to be only a half day, I spend nine hours attempting to get ahead, and it worked! I already feel much better and I started actually dreaming again at work.
If you're barely keeping your head above the water, maybe it's time to change. A level of excellence cannot be reached if the act of surviving is the most prominent thought on our minds.
