The Covey Circles of Influence

Anxiety is a call to action so we need to respond by doing something.

Stephen Covey’s CIA can help break a problem down so it is less overwhelming.

Working from the outside in, categorise your worries into those which you can:

  • Accept – these concerns are outside of your control and influence. Try to let these go and focus on what you can influence and control.
  • Influence – be realistic about the concerns you can influence. Score your influence on a scale of 1-10 and any concern scoring lower than 5, move to ‘Accept’.
  • Control – direct your time and energy towards the elements that you can control. This will minimise feelings of overwhelm and frustration.

How our Minds Trap us in Career Paralysis

Career decision making is hard, and one of the reasons for that is that our minds are exceptionally good at thinking of alternative careers and then discounting them.

This video shows how minds – bless them – simply weren’t designed for complex and at times existential decisions, like career choice. Our minds are clearly not our enemies, but they are not always our friends, either.  See if this resonates!
