Challenge Myself: #98 Stop Holding Back

Today is Day #98 of the Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says to think about two reasons why you haven't moved ahead in your job.

The book says,

This may seem like an exercise in negative thinking, but it isn't. In fact, it's just the opposite. In order to move forward, you have to know what holds you back and then figure out how to deal with
whatever it is.

For example, you are always over budget and behind schedule on projects assigned to you. Figure out why that is and what specific steps you can take to ensure it won't happen again.

If the problem is lack of knowledge, take some critical education classes, refresher courses, or find other ways to learn more about your field. If you are in a management position and are chronically late to meetings, don't possess great conflict resolution skills, or are not a people person, you may want to consider shifting into a different job. Working on a job that you enjoy will increase your levels of happiness.

Just For Today: I am happy right where I am at in my job.
