Stop Making the Impossible Happen at Work



You are a superhero, yes? You’re the one that gets called to step up and save the project that was initially mismanaged or has gone off the rails. You’re the one that can be counted on for calm leadership when an engagement enters crisis mode. You make order out of chaos.

For achievers, it can feel amazing to be the chosen one. Well, it feels stressful as hell or like a soul-sucking slog while you are making the impossible happen. But the payoff feeling when you are done… now that feels good.

For like a minute.

If you are honest with yourself, you probably barely have time to acknowledge your win before moving onto the next herculean effort or to pick up the pieces from projects that were neglected while you were saving the day.

It’s okay to like the feeling that comes from doing what others can’t. In fact, be proud you are such a badass!

But if it is coming at an expense to your well-being, then it is time to step back and chart a new course forward.
