When fear sets in, we stop being gracious! And then it all goes wrong.

“Worry is like a rocking chair: it keeps you busy but it never gets you anywhere.” - Joyce Meyer

Experience has shown me that worry takes us somewhere but it’s not where we’d like to go. A few weeks ago, I took the lead on a new project. It had been delayed but we still had to deliver within the next two months. No one believed we could. But despite everything, we succeeded, thanks to the effort of the whole team pulling together and micro-management of what was required.

I began this project by chance. I devoted all my energy to it and spent many more hours than planned to ensure that it was a success. As I was juggling two other projects at the same time, I could not get rid of this feeling that I was not good enough. I was worrying about not being able to meet my obligations.
