In “The Art Of Possibility” by Ben & Rosamund Zander, Ben tells how he permits his students to ‘give themselves an A’ in his college course.
His students do have to provide a written explanation as to why they deserve that grade, and there is a degree of accountability built in, but for you, my question is:
What if you could give yourself an ‘A’?
What would it take?
Instead of always grading yourself so harshly in various endeavors, ask yourself what an ‘A’ would look like.
It might not be that scary or difficult to achieve.
