Pushing Through

Sometimes you have a choice between letting something go and pushing it through to completion. When that choice shows up, usually it takes a lot to push through and you have to decide if you are up for it. Say, something has gone off-track in a project through no fault of your own, but you are the only one around that can fix it. Doing so means extra hours and a lot of effort. How do you get yourself ready?

There are several ways to gear up for pushing through. First, mentally prepare by accepting what’s ahead. Second, make sure you have what you need to get done what you have to. Third, make sure, even though you are pushing, that you do not burn yourself out physically. You may have to stretch a bit, but then you can make sure to make space to rest once you are done.

If you feel you cannot push through alone and get a job done, ask for and get the help you need. Pushing through is not an every day thing; however pushing through, when it’s warranted, helps your career and has many rewards.
