Feeling flat. Like the battery has gone to red and then empty. Needing to pull the plug. Running on an empty tank.
All of these sayings may ring true for you right now. Or for someone you know, someone in your team, in your circles.
This is NOT the time to ask the big questions: what’s the point? Who do I think I am? Am I really in the right job? Should we forget all about that strategy? Or big statements like “that’s it, finally it’s clear to all that we’ve been faking it” or whatever your version of fraud, imposter or wanna-be is. There is only one way if you pull out those questions and statements at that moment: further down the rabbit hole.
This is NOT the time for drastic decisions.
Instead, do what’s not natural to a lot of us. Accept a little pause. Accept that the battery needs recharging. Don’t make it a bigger deal than that. Take the pressure off just for a moment.
It is what it is. Make that the point right now. Nothing bigger, nothing smaller. Simply accepting. Aaaaaaah, that’s a much better rabbit hole.
Rabbit holes aren’t ideal for great decisions. No matter if they’re blissful or turbulent. A horizon is a better topography. Leave the big decisions to when you’re back out.
