One of the ways I chill out daily is by playing a mobile game.
When I pass each level, I get rewarded with coins and boosters.
Here's what I learned about my own mindset with this game:
#1: I never want to give up and keep re-trying until I pass that level.
Even if I need to return to it tomorrow, I will!
#2: Initially I was reluctant to use the coins I won to buy boosters to help me.
Bad idea - I took way longer to complete the level.
#3: Stop seeing boosters as something I needed to save, but actually to use.
They're there to help me get ahead!
Here's how ALL of these apply in your career.
Game level = Career Level
Reward Coins = Money/Salary
Boosters = Skills
Every time you give up, you're further away from your career goal.
Every time you save instead of investing, you're getting further away from expert advice that can help you advance in your career.
Every time you don't use the boosters aka skills you've learned, you're getting further away from your own growth.
