Are you getting in your own way?


Seth Godin started this fun new series where every morning he sends a prompt via Facebook Messenger to get your brain thinking about an issue or even the whole day differently.

Yesterday he sent this one:

"Are you getting in your own way?"

I have been thinking about it for two days.

What excuses allow you to hide from the work?

What fears you repeat to yourself stop you from shipping your art?

How are you talking yourself out of excellence?

What do you think you DON'T deserve?

How many opportunities do you not take advantage of?

How many times a day do you say "I don't have time?"

What would happen to you and your work if you turned each of these around and self-talked yourself in a different direction?

How would that change your day? Now get out of your own way...
