It’s important to have habits and checklists when things get foggy. It’s also important to remember that things will not always be foggy, and you’ll eventually look back and wish you had performed better.
The problem is, there’s a negative connotation around performance. It’s reality meets the individual. It’s harsh. But then again, so is life. Anyone saying otherwise is selling something. Life requires you to be harsh sometimes, but we can reserve those ‘sometimes’ to expecting excellence from ourselves.
Don’t just survive the fog. That’s what most people do. Punch through it.
