I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.
Today’s tip is to be kind to yourself today. Remember progress takes time.
This is something that having and working with kids has taught me. I’ve watched them take advice or coaching from me, or not, but I can see there is a difference across time.
Lately I’ve had a lot of deliverables, for various different presentations. Rather than get upset or concerned when I’ve been delayed in getting something done, I’ve stopped and reminded myself that a task may just take time.
It’s helpful to remind yourself that despite getting things done today, I may have more to do tomorrow. As along as I’m making progress, that’s OK.
