Bosses Don’t Indulge Guilt

Kathleen here. In this week’s episode on Being Boss and Being Mom, Emily and I noticed that there are lots of parallels between raising a kid and building a business. One of the not-so-dreamy patterns I notice when it comes to both being a mom and being a boss is the overwhelming feeling of guilt. The feeling that you could be doing more or the feeling that you aren’t enough seems to come with the territory when you’re doing things that really matter to you. So today I want to spend a few minutes talking about guilt and steps on how to deal with it.

Awareness alone is a really powerful tool for managing your emotions and not being overwhelmed by them. -@andkathleen Click To Tweet 'Change what you are physically doing to generate new emotions.' -@andkathleen Click To Tweet 'That’s what bosses do – they don’t let their feelings determine whether or not they work.' -@andkathleen Click To Tweet 'Doing the work you love typically generates good productive feelings.' -@andkathleen Click To Tweet
