What would you do if you wanted to be bad at your job? Don’t over think it; what would be on the list? You have a sense of what success should look like, but do you know what not to do? You may have a quota or a list of of objectives for a job; do you have an idea of what failure looks like from the point of view of your management? In yoga class, we sometimes a do a pose the wrong way to help us understand the and differentiate the right way. We learn the potential damage of doing the pose the wrong way, or the nuances that will permit us to achieve the peak pose. This exercise helps us self correct. Have the failure conversation, know the indicators of bad as well as the parameters for great. Self correct as required. This can be the difference between hanging in there and going out on a limb and thriving.
