When it comes to obstacles to getting things done, what comes to mind?

Other people (co-workers or family members!)?

Where you work and who you work for (management)?
What’s going on in the world (weather, news, gossip)?


But are you getting in your own way?

It’s so easy to blame other people and things, but could you be part of the problem? In most - if not all - cases, the answer is yes.

How to get out of your own way

Acknowledge and accept your shortcomings. You can’t know or do everything.

Learn to harness the power of:
- Outsourcing
- Delegating
- Eliminating

Know your limits.
- Be cognizant of frustration, fatigue, anger, or however else you want to label this.

Take breaks.
- During the day. Especially when you are frustrated.
- Take a weekend off.
- Get away with your family.
- Remember to breathe.

DON'T FORGET: your success does not define who you are. If you think it does, think again.
