We all hit breaking points where frustration makes you question your direction, what's important, and why you seem to be stuck in a current situation. If this weekend finds you at a professional or emotional crossroads, maybe it's time to step back, look at some of your self-imposed constraints, and say, "To hell with it!"

Where to start?

If you're dealing with anything on the list below, one or two of them would be a good place to start.

Consider saying, "To hell with . . . "

  • Over-preparing for presentations, projects, meetings - whatever it might be.
  • Trying to make equal time for ALL the objectives you think you need to reach.
  • Attempting to perform to your overly high standards.
  • Volunteering again for something you've already volunteered for multiple times.
  • Buying something you'd usually buy without thinking twice.
  • Taking on a project where you're not going to get paid what you're worth.
  • Complaining and worrying about things you can't change.
  • Networking with people you can't meaningfully help and who can't really help you either.
  • Ignoring the need to focus on a big, tough goal while spending time on a bunch of easy, distracting goals.

For me, this weekend has less frustration than usual because I didn't volunteer again for a project which once provided learning and development but wasn't going to anymore. In my case, saying, "To hell with it," was difficult when I did it, but it feels great today!Mike Brown
