4 simple steps to a happier, heartier mind at work, by Katya Andresen
Good advice, Katya:
1. Know what you’re doing before you worry about how you’ll do it.
We jump to thoughts of implementation so often in our work, and that tendency creates several problems. We may not know exactly what we’re implementing, why we’re implementing it or how much is possible. By skipping ahead to the details, we begin work that may not make sense—and we unnecessarily constrain ourselves. Be mindful about each idea you’re pursuing and determine its larger purpose before running forward with activities. It’s not about what you’re doing but why you’re doing it.
