Do you have a problem with shoelaces untying themselves? Tip: tie them backwards. When you get to the part of the knot where you usually go left over right, do it right over left. If you search for “tie shoes backwards,” you’ll find there’s a reason why it works.
This revised way of tying your shoes will feel awkward at first. However, if you keep doing it, I promise it will start to feel more natural. The reward is that your shoes will stay tied.
The first time you lead a conflict, resolution will be uncomfortable. Giving critical feedback might have you feeling anxious. Being vulnerable with your team for the first time might feel like a million butterflies in your stomach.
The only way to get good at something, though, is to do it. Do something every day that makes you uncomfortable.
You’ve got this.
