”Argue for your limitations and you get to keep them.”
When faced with high demands, the most common impulse is to do more, increase resources and pace. However, the most successful way through challange is to lower restraining forces, instead of pushing driving forces. Only it´s much harder since it requires patience and mental toughness. You have to face your frustration and be still in the eye of the storm. You are required to find the words to describe the obstacles and talk about them.
To organize your energy more wisely, try to rephrase your problems as challenges. Instead of framing them as things that are wrong or bad, see if you can name how they are stopping you and keeping you from reaching your goals. Once you have defined the restraining forces, you can find ways to lower them. Work smarter, not harder.
We live in an industrial culture where the belief "MAKE MORE = BECOME MORE". It comes from an age when we needed to keep up with the pace of machines. Today the deal is completely different, where human needs should be at the center; it is the time to BE more, not do more. To let creativity, personal development and teamwork flourish.
