  • timebox research and the take action

Going big

Comparing yourself to others

  • an excuse to not try or even start
  • vs. compare yourself to past you

Postponing gratification

  • to be sustainable it needs to have pleasure

  • vs. Giving yourself a reward; appreciation and gratitude

Self commitment

Create a commitment for yourself for the next event/session/… about something you change.
