You don’t want to burn yourself out by doing too much at once. Even though you hate sitting still and end up feeling restless the second that your boredom sets in, you need to remember that taking it slow isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes, it’s exactly what you need in order to refuel yourself. After all, if your tank is empty, then you won’t be able to see the results that you want. Technically, you could push yourself to keep going – but at what cost? You don’t want to hurt yourself when you’re trying to set yourself up for a brighter future. You should be careful because even though you might feel like you’re superhuman, you will get tired and worn down like the rest of us – unless you go easy on yourself.
You’re always rushing around, trying to do favors for everyone who needs you. But you can’t play their savior. Sometimes, it’s better to say no when they need you. It doesn’t make you a bad friend. In fact, their constant demand of your attention, regardless of how stressed you’ve been, makes them a bad friend. They shouldn’t be taking advantage of your kindness because they know you aren’t going to turn down the chance to help. Stop worrying about taking care of everyone else because it’s making you less productive in your own life. Although it might be nice to have a distraction from your problems by focusing on their problems, yours aren’t going to go away. If you want to be more productive, you have to accept that you can’t take care of everyone. For now, it might be best to focus on yourself.
You are a hard worker, but when you get frustrated, you can reach a point where you don’t care about anything. You don’t see the point in trying. You’re not going to give up, but you’re going to put in less and less effort because it seems like there’s no difference either way. However, you need to break yourself out of this mindset. It’s perfectly fine to give yourself a break and allow yourself to do less, but not because you feel hopeless. Not because you feel like your hard work is going to waste. Even though you might have your doubts right now, you can reach your wildest dreams. You can accomplish more than you’re expecting. Try not to let your pessimism and cynicism get the best of you. You have what it takes to reach greatness. Don’t give up now.
You’re an overthinker. You have so many different things on your mind, so many worries that are taking up your brain space. Even though you care deeply about your work, you’re having trouble focusing on anything for more than a few minutes before your attention gets pulled in the other direction. It’s not your fault, but this can be especially frustrating for someone like you who prides themselves on your work. Just remember, your productivity does not correlate to your value. It’s okay if your best today looks different than your best last week or last year. You’re doing better than you give yourself credit for.
