How I’m dodging the second arrow. When abstract thoughts and questions flood my brain, I create a grid like the one above on paper.
In first column I write down the negative, abstract thought to make it clearer, e.g. “My skill set may not be what I think it is.”
The second column is there to help with perspective, e.g “Here are 3 examples of your skill set in action.”
The third column connects thought to action, e.g. “Rewrite bio on personal site
to reflect what you know to be true.”
Rejection sucks, but self-doubt is poison.
