Sometimes I feel like I am falling behind (fear of falling behind). Like others are miles ahead of me. Can you relate?
We are all falling behind in something. It’s impossible to be ahead of the curve in everything, right? Or am I just making excuses? LOL
If I realize I am falling behind in an area, I need to check my EGO first. I need to ask myself, “Does it really matter that I don’t have this skill set or knowledge or accomplishment?” If it does not matter, I can release the pressure I am putting on myself and instead put energy into things that do matter to me. And, if I realize that the area I’m falling behind in is important to me, then it’s time to set realistic expectations.
In Episode #3 of the Leading Better Teams podcast, I explore FOFB (Fear of Falling Behind) a phenomenon that I face from time to time. I’ll share with you how I think through it so I’m being kind to myself and identifying a healthy ambition.
If you feel like you are falling behind and need some inspiration and a simple process to resolve this, please listen in and enjoy the show!
