Selfdoubt and selfsabotage and make creation go.
Selfdoubt. Can’t get rid of it. Flow happens when you do the work. Selfsabotage is not permited. If you want to do the work do it. Go for it. Don’t use your doubt. Call the bluff of resistance. I’m going to go back to be an insurance actuary. Flow will follow. Not the other way around.

If it works your call, if not, my bad. If you are lucky enough to have a good gig. They want you to become a leader. Diferent to being a manager.
