I want you to make me a promise
I want to make a deal with you. Right now.
From now on, come hell or high water, you and I don’t do overwhelm alone.
I understand there are a thousand reasons why it feels like you can’t ask for help, or why your professional circumstances are so special that no one else will understand, but none of it is real. It’s a trap.
From now on you and I will ask for help. We will build trusting, authentic professional relationships that will be our support system when things get crazy.
From now on you and I will remind ourselves that most professional thinks their problems are special, but the themes are the same for almost everyone. I promise you: I work with smart professionals every day and I get to see that they are all basically wrestling with the same issues.
When we refuse to do overwhelm alone we diffuse much of its power. We learn that we were never as alone as we believed.
(If you love this idea, but just don’t know how to start, I’d love to chat with you about how I can help you change the story you believe about the professional challenges in front of you.)
