Seth Godin recently reminded me of a critical mindset, Abundance vs scarcity.


The need to fit into to a new situation

The pressure to conform

To become a member of the team

Feeling overwhelmed and failing

Living in fear

Not confident to be ourselves

Like Mondays after a relaxed and fulfilling weekend and finding ourselves in maximum Anxiety, or Monday Morning peak Avoidance, feeling crippled.


To move from being out-of-control to in control of ourselves

To unwind and relax, managing our state.

Feeling gratitude and energy

Opening our minds to the possibility and staying out of judgement

Get clear and stay clear on purpose and priorities,

Feel satisfaction in our progress and contribution.

Feeling like we have clarity and peace, assisting those around us, but not surrendering our schedule. Making time for what matters. Smiling and complimenting meaningfully.
