If You Feel Like You’re Not Pulling Your Weight You’re In The Right Place

The anxious feeling that you’re not pulling your weight amongst your colleagues might be wrong. It’s likely that you are, in fact, doing your fair share of the work, or that, even if you’re not, it’s only for a moment in which you need to attend to other things. In my experience, the people who fear they’re not carrying enough are. It’s the ones who complain about having to do too much who are keeping the team from really soaring.

So check yourself when you get twitchy because you suspect everyone else is doing more work, or better work, than you. Check yourself, and then give thanks that you’re working with people who take care of business. Seriously, if that feeling tells you anything it’s that these are the kinds of people you want to be working with.
