Tomorrow is a big day. I have a number of events that will take me out of my comfort zone.
I am more than 24 hours away from some of those events but I can already feel the familiar sensation of anxiety building up in my chest. I’ve heard it described as experiencing the pain of failure in advance.
This feels like an apt description to me but at the same time it doesn’t explain how useless the feeling is. In most instances the fear of failure is far worse than any consequences realised cost that may come from not delivering perfectly.
My latest strategy is to turn this anxiety into excitement. By using the emotion and adrenaline in a positive way I can head into tomorrow with a sense of purpose rather than a sense of dread.
