The Psychology of the Good Deed

So you have a goal in life, a mission, and a strategy. Then you execute it and sail toward complete success. Right? Probably not. At some point stress, exhaustion, and even burnout can bring your project down. But, you can reel it in. In Her book  The Lifelong Activist: How to Change the World Without Losing Your Way Hillary Rettig argues that what prevents ambitious and idealistic people from achieving their goals are fears not of failure, but of success and change, which can lead to procrastination and life compromises. Read her solutions to these common problems. A fascinating read! Recommended. (Added to Highly Recommended Reads)
