Hold That Thought

Impact is the antidote

What's on your…

My dog Terry had ear surgery Monday and I'm having a wisdom tooth pulled Friday, so this week I've been thinking about how we all get through a tough week. Here are three things on that theme to help turn overthinking into expert thinking:

  1. The #1 cause of burnout is not what you think. A 6-minute pep talk from Liz Wiseman at the Big Think
  2. No, they are not mad at you. And other comforting messages from anonymous dogs
  3. When you're too tired to figure out what you need, go to your self-care menu — an updated page and worksheet from me

Extra thoughts…

Take care of yourself, and each other.


PS. This week's unthinking link takes us to the British seaside…a simulator! Which reminds me…

PPS. Yes, I live next to Crosby beach and no, I did not see the Northern Lights. It's ok to miss out on things.
