This great Adam Grant quote shook up my thinking in a great way:
“If you judge your worth by your achievements, you feel worthless whenever you fall short of a goal. Stable self-confidence comes from learning to separate your performance from your self-esteem. Excellence is a reflection of effort, skill, and luck – not your value as a person.”
When considering all you’ve accomplished in 2021, let this guide your thinking. As you plan for whatever accomplishments and opportunities you’ll pursue in 2022, it’s worth decoupling yourself from what you do and don’t do.
Intrinsically, you’re winning. You can’t always see how.
