How To Own Your Stuff
Creating any sort of change is far from easy, regardless of whether this is a change in your own personal habits, a change in your team or a change within a large organization. And yet, if we want improvement or progress, change is essential.
So, what is the biggest obstacle to change? It’s fairly simple – most of us are ashamed to simply admit to and own our ‘stuff’. By this, I mean behaviours that may not have served a situation effectively, habits that are keeping us stuck, limited thinking that may not have originally been conscious but now is, and suchlike. Our egos do not like to admit that maybe we have done things or are doing things that don’t work. But in order to create positive change, we have to take our egos down a few pegs and admit to our habits before we can change them.
