"If you were to pick yourself apart with tweezers, one atom at a time, you would produce a mound of fine atomic dust, none of which had ever been alive but all of which had once been you."

Looking Back

Look back to remind yourself of the time when you were stuck, where you felt low or doubted yourself. You are alive and stronger than ever.

Remind yourself of those times, and tell yourself you'll do it again.

Make Fewer Decisions

Make Fewer Decisions

Research has found that when people are given more options, they have more opportunities for regret and worry.

To protect your happiness, limit the amount of time you give yourself to choose, or pick between fewer options.

Don't allow yourself to second guess the decision once...

Do many things

It's better to have lots of options and interests than none at all. 

Make a list of all the things you're interested in, pick two to focus on first and then get busy. If you realize it's not what you thought it would be, scratch it off of your list and move on.
