Interesting work from HBR building on the research already done into developing an approach to the world based on gratitude. Apparently, spending as little as 5 minutes a day thinking about what went well – and importantly why builds an improvement in morale and confidence. Worth a try? https://hbr.org/2015/09/the-powerful-effect-of-noticing-good-things-at-work
I know some of my coaching clients have extremely high expectations of themselves and are better at seeing what else they need to get done – rather than their successes so far. This is demoralising and self defeating and I often ask them to keep a ‘never ending list of my successes’. I’d love to hear if you’ve tried it.
