When you can't get yourself to do what you want to do

When you can’t find motivation.

When you feel stuck.

When it seems that all others are making it work, and you’re not moving forward.

I’m just going to tell you again, until it hits home:


You are not flawed. You are not broken. You have not reached your level of incompetence. You are not a fraud. You’re not jinxed.

This awful feeling of disappointment in yourself is not a bug: it’s a feature.

We keep on forgetting that Nature has optimized our brains over 5 million years in its R&D lab to be perfectly adapted…

…to the life we had 100,000 years ago.

No careers. No Instagram. No content creation strategies.

Around us: hungry tigers (galore) and a bunch of more or less poisonous mushrooms.

When it sucks, it’s not destiny informing you that you are failing at life. It’s Nature letting you know that you should pay attention – as per factory settings.

Coaching is all about setting those dials to what YOU want to pay attention to.

No bad horses, only untrained riders 🐴
