In a couple of weeks I will begin my last full year of graduate school. It feels exciting and rewarding, but there is a large sense of pressure that tags along with it, as well. I did well this past year. However, I saw many opportunities I didn't partake in.

I recently spoke with multiple former PMs who needed to take year-long sabbaticals to get themselves back on track. They were tired. Their anxiety was running high. They could not seem to get any of their goals accomplished. They were in a funk. Sound familiar?

You're Not Good Enough to Be Disappointed

In the beginning, you're still learning. You're still developing. You're still building. You haven't developed enough competency to feel disappointed by your performance. You're supposed to feel stupid and unskilled.

The world changes. We become aware of such change by listening to how we feel. Whether in the wilds of the woods or life, if something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. Look at it. Change your map accordingly. Make a course correction. It's the only way to get home.

So identify three actions that take no more than ten minutes a day and that, if you looked back in a year after doing them every day, might add up to huge gains.

What Every Successful Person Knows, But Never Says

It's easier to recognize beauty than it is to create it. You're good enough to know that what you're doing isn't good, but not good enough to produce something great.

The day before our 12th anniversary was a glorious "pure Michigan" day; a cool, crisp blue-sky morning, the leaves of the white spruce and oak trees rustling in a slow breeze, the red-winged blackbirds flitting around our deck. Our celebration would appear to be an odd one to an outsider: two people sitting indoors, Starbucks lattes in hand, hunched over spreadsheets and laptops.
