I am Anna Rowley
I’ve worked as a consulting psychologist to some of the most innovative tech-companies in the world. Some, like Microsoft are huge companies with a global footprint, others are start-ups led by passionate founders who want to change the world. I’ve learned much from these experiences. In particular how the most successful executives, founders and entrepreneurs are resilient, and are able to make positive choices about their psychological health and well being. Now I want to bring these insights, skills and technologies to you.
Resilience really comes down to two things – making a hard decision to engage with adversity. Our last hack will move you from making a soft, handy-wavy choice to maybe, perhaps, act, to making the hard decision to take committed action! Here’s how to become a resilient, decision making boss.
The Japanese have a word for it: KonMari. A discipline of tidying our belongings so that we keep ‘only those things that speak to the heart, and discard items that no longer spark joy’. This simple method has sparked a revolution in choosing what to keep and what to discard in our homes. Why not use the same philosophy for self-care?
Resilience Hack #1: Absence may make the heart grow fonder but distance definitely promotes better self-care.
One of the biggest problems preventing us from activating resilience is our failure to manage how we feel. One way to put our feelings in their place – as a passenger providing information not in the driver’s seat choosing our destination – is to use psychological distancing.
