Be The Best Version Of Yourself
Sometimes no matter how hard we try it just seems like we aren’t operating at our peak level. We are sloppy, making mistakes, dropping the ball and feel like we’re constantly disappointing ourselves and others. Sometimes it happens because of things beyond our control, but it’s often the result of a number of factors that we are able to subtly tweak and improve on. Here’s how to be the best version of yourself:
- Give yourself lots of time. No one operates at their finest when they are madly rushing from one place to the next. You become distracted, forgetful and just plain sloppy. Make an extra effort with your schedule to allow plenty of time to get places. Allowing a little extra time lets you arrive with a calm and cool head, rather than feeling frazzled and overwhelmed.
- Be honest about your abilities. It’s great to be ambitious, but try not to bite off more than you can chew. Avoid taking on projects that you can’t handle on your own or are outside of your abilities. You’ll just end up being stressed and hating it. If you’re able to be honest about your abilities and what you can handle you’ll end up with a load that’s more manageable.
