Don’t Let Guilt Slow You Down


We all have times when we feel guilt. I should have started that project sooner. How come I said that in the meeting? Why didn’t I send in an application? Even though this kind of self-doubt is common, it can be a waste of time and energy. Here are three ways to break the cycle of feeling guilty.

  • First take care of yourself, then you can help others. You can’t help anyone if you’re a nervous wreck, whether it’s your boss, a friend, or a family member. Make time for what’s important to you. Don’t second-guess yourself or let other people’s needs pull you off the path you’ve chosen.
  • Pay attention to how you make other people feel. Your need to be perfect might be getting in the way of your relationships. For example, if you are always putting yourself under pressure to do well, your team may feel bad about not meeting the same standards as youUnplug from your responsibilities every once in a while.
  • Not doing anything is not always a bad thing. In fact, self-care is one of the most important things you can do to reach your goals. Don’t let the way things are done at work or in your culture make you feel bad about not being productive every minute of every day.
