Here are a couple of effective ways to exercise self-compassion whenever you need it. Try saying the following to yourself:
“I accept the good, the bad and the ugly; I fully accept every part of myself including my flaws, fears, behaviors, and qualities I might not be too proud of. This is how I am, and I am at peace with that.”
“No matter what happens externally and no matter what’s taken away from me, I’m not affected internally.”
Doing the work is about producing something of value, especially to others (ex: designing something, interviewing stakeholders, capturing insights in a Google Doc, drawing a conceptual model, etc). Work produces artifacts that create value for the organization.
Meta-work is everything else you must do to make that work possible. (this can include thinking about what must be done next, in what sequence, what materials or resources you’ll need, who you need to talk with, figuring out when they’re available, scheduling calls, etc). It is part time management, part systems, part habits etc.
