Eliminate Self Doubt
Women should be changing the world itself, because it is not working. We can do this by eliminating the voice of self-doubt within ourselves. Silence the voice of self-doubt within yourself by giving your body the rest it needs. A fresh mind leads to better decisions, which leads to more success. Exerting yourself constantly can lead to mistakes, which increases the voice of self-doubt in you. Don’t become your own worst enemy to your success.

Downtime is essential for our performance, wellbeing, and our health.

Avoid the Burnout
There is a popular belief that the key to success is being ‘always on’, and the price for success is burnout. Software and machines were created to reduce downtime, but for humans, downtime is a necessity. Downtime is essential for our performance, wellbeing, and our health. We need to realize that downtime is important for our success. Employees who are burnt out are 35% more likely to change jobs.

Multitasking is a Myth
When we decide to do two things at once that involve cognitive effort, we end up doing neither. When we focus on one thing, and give it all of our input, we naturally perform better. Peak performance does not come from trying to do more within the time that you have and tiring yourself. Multitasking seems to be the solution to everything, but in the end we don’t get the results that we want, and end up burning out.

Keep your Company Healthy
The culture of a company is its immune system, letting us identify and fight problems almost instantaneously. If the company’s culture is not strong, problems proliferate and infect every part of the business. Allowing people to thrive and refuel lets them perform at their highest level consistently. The best culture is a performing one. In fact, employees who are burnt out are 35% more likely to change jobs.
