Stepping back

Sometimes you can have the feeling you’re taking a step back in your career. You don’t improve as fast as you’d like, and you get frustrated while going back again and again. But… you know what? It’s just a feeling. You actually are moving forward.
The biggest problem with the feeling of going backwards is the role your ego plays. Because you care too much of what other people think.
Let’s face this in another way… If you were certainly sure that a change is going to work, even though your ego would be affected for others people thinking, wouldn’t you go backwards to gain traction?
The idea is simple. In most cases what seems stepping back is actually a way to get speed.
The next you feel you’re not moving ahead, think in your strategy and leave your ego outside of the game.
