One of my favorite books for business is Linchpin by Seth Godin. He talks about “the Lizard Brain”. We have a tendency to want to blend in and hide from standing out. But in order to not be indispensable in your job, you need to find what truly makes you stand out from the rest. It can be something simple like how you work with others or what you bring differently to the business than the rest.
Don’t Compare Yourself To Others When Decorating
With holidays here you will be visiting other homes. I find this time of the year is when that lizard brain really kicks in. “Comparison envy”, that wanting to be like everyone else. But what you have to remember they are not you and their look will not be the best for you. You can get ideas and then go home and try your own thing. It can be great motivation if you let it, but don’t let it become envy and make you question your own style.
So when you are decorating work around what you love most about your home. Incorporate colors that bring out the best qualities of your home. So why not celebrate your family and who you are this holiday season.
Happy Everything! Karen
