If you mess it up, people might think badly of you. But here’s the other side of the coin: if it goes well, you will have an incredible sense of accomplishment.
Without even seeing it, I can tell you – your work could be better. But that’s not the point.
As we grow up, our toys get replaced by phones, laptops, cameras, sports equipment, clothes – and all of these tools enable us to realize our potential in different ways. But that doesn’t mean we should stop playing.
We know that in an ideal world competence and credibility is measured by merit and not by gender. However we also know that unfortunately we don’t live in an ideal world and many women often get interrupted or not taken seriously, especially in business environments. But that doesn’t mean you should accept that.
Are you looking at a big task in front of you? You have to write your thesis, want to build a summer body or bring an idea into realization that you’ve been thinking about for a long time? Are you saying that you’ll definitely start working on it soon, but that “soon” has been going on for quite some time now?
It’s a tricky situation, not knowing what you want to do. We will spend such a huge part of our life working and right now we are still in position to choose what that will be. It is understandable that we’re afraid we might spend 40 years doing something we don’t want. But how can we make a good decision if we don’t know what it is that we want?
Does your voice sounds incredibly annoying on recordings? And when you realise that this is what people around you actually hear, it makes you want to not ever open your mouth again, right? Well, you’re not the only one.
A well-meant, sincere and naturally-timed smile can open more doors for you than you can imagine.
