How to Make Work Feel EffortlessNovember 9, 2008Sometimes work can be a drag. You get caught up in trying to be more productiveand suddenly your life turns into a series of to-do lists. You gauge your measure of success by how much you accomplish. You even determine how happy you allowyourself to be by how much you’ve gotten done in the day.We spend a lot of time trying to find ways to be more productive.

What’s making yourwork seem like drudgery rather than joyful? It might have something to do with yourbeliefs about yourself. Maybe you believe you’re not good enough, smart enough ordon’t have enough experience. Question your beliefs about what you can and can’tdo.Only do your best. Work can easily become a chore when you’re trying to constantlybe perfect. The truth is, some of your ideas might not be so great. Others will bemind blowing.
