BUsiness moves quickly and there are time you need to harness innovation and creativity. That is difficult when emotions like fear, doubt, regret, and frustration get in your way. Those emotions are common but to keep them from holding you back you need to manage them. Here are some common emotional hurdles — and what to do about them:
- The fear of getting started. Pursuing a truly innovative idea almost always involves risk and you might be worried that you don’t have the confidence or competence to succeed. Identify the source of your concern then seek out the information or partners you need to compensate for any shortcomings.
- The frustration of setbacks. Everyone knows it’s important to learn from failure, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to do. It’s a process that requires conscious effort and discipline. If you do stumble, dissect what went wrong, process your grief, and reframe your misstep as an opportunity for a turnaround.
- A tendency to go into overdrive. Passion is a good thing. But if unbridled, it can hamper critical thinking. Schedule breaks and continually double check with those around you that you’re on the right track.
