I’ve been closely analyzing my behavior and what influences it for a while now. Here’s what I found out.

When I don’t feel good about my work, it’s typically one or several of these things:

If my work doesn’t require me to push the boundaries, step out of my comfort zone, then I won’t feel good about it.

If I want to feel like I’m not stagnating, like I’m not stuck at one point and can’t move forward, ...
... I need to do things that might be uncomfortable. Because afterwards I always feel good.

That’s why I always make sure to do things that are outside of my routine. Things like reaching out to podcasts and booking interviews. ...
Writing guest posts. Going LIVE on my Facebook page. Doing a joint webinar. Changing directions.

Uncomfortableness has always been directly correlated with progress.

If I’m not a better version of myself with every step I take, what’s the point?

I’ve always been a nerd, always ready to learn about new things that interest me. And if I have a few days where I don’t read at least 1 article, 1 chapter of a book, ...
... I feel like I’m slowly moving backwards.

I have incorporated “learning time” in my routine, as a part of my work day. Because it’s work, we should treat it with importance.

Even before I started Super Spicy Media, I always shared what I was learning.

Sharing was an integral part of my journey to where I am now. It made me who I am. It strengthened other people’s trust in me. Built my authority.
If I put it on a side lane, it feels like something’s missing.

I’m still really bad at this, still struggling with taking time to work in public, write blog posts, educate other people, help them. But again, scheduling time to do so helps.

The three points above are typically the cause of my bad mood. When I fix that behavior, I immediately feel good the next day.

However, if I want to take it to the next level, I try to “ventilate” my brain, air it out by meditation.
This resets my mood completely, like a restart.

I try to do it on a daily basis, ideally before work and before bed. It *always* makes me feel good, without exception. And only takes me 10 mins.

Hope this is helpful to anyone out there struggling with feeling bad about themselves, their work, their progress.

It only feels that bad because you’re looking at it from up close, too close. You’re here, you’re working, you’re persistent. You’re a badass & you got this.
