And I'm always so happy when people say they find Playing Big to be actionable and practical....I hope you won't think of the book as giving advice as much as giving you a set of tools to use day to day. I'd give yourself time to focus on integrating the tools from one chapter so they become habit before moving on to the next. In other words, spend a week using the inner critic tools...then move onto Inner Mentor work...and so on. Of course, another great way to give yourself support and accountability is to form a group, ongoing PB book club, or just get an accountability buddy...The Playing Big course that I teach offers another way to do this because we take the tools one at a time over 6 months. Some people also like to write prompts/reminders into their calendars to help them remember to use the tools. (less)

A lot of women have an unfounded fear of coming across this way, and we have room to be far more unprepared than we realize. An example: a friend of mine - a good student all her years in school - would feel flustered and panicked every time she'd be asked for numbers or projections that she wasn't sure about or couldn't give in detail. She'd say she wasn't sure, or she didn't have the number. Then she saw how in fact the culture in her field was for loose projections and very general figures to be thrown out in meetings, and there was an understanding the numbers weren't exact and that the projections were just that - projections. She started to more confidently present even when there was uncertainty around the numbers. So test this out. If you are getting repeated feedback that you are coming across as underprepared or inexperienced, that's the time to change your approach, and start to include more substance or detail. But don't do it based on a fear or assumption. (less)

Happiness Is…

Earlier this week, I heard author Eve Rodsky say, “Let’s remember, happiness is sustained attention to something you love.”

This is one of the most helpful notions of happiness I’ve heard (and trust me, I’ve heard a lot of them!). For me, it’s also one of the most resonant.

My happiest times are indeed those in which I bring sustained attention to something I love. A creative act. A work of literatu

“Feedback doesn’t tell you about yourself. It tells you about the person giving the feedback. In other words, if someone says your work is gorgeous, that just tells you about *their* taste. If you put out a new product and it doesn’t sell at all, that tells you something about what your audience does and doesn’t want. When we look at praise and criticism as information about the people giving it, we tend to get really curious about the feedback, rather than dejected or defensive.”
Tara Mohr, Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Mission, Your Message

“Research shows that women incur social costs for advocating for themselves too strongly; they are seen as less likable by those around them, especially by other women.”
Tara Mohr, Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Mission, Your Message

“Attachment to praise and avoidance of criticism keeps us from doing innovative, controversial work and--more simply--from following the paths we feel called toward, whether or not those around us understand or approve.”
Tara Mohr, Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Mission, Your Message
