W is for worryW is for worry

Moms tend to worry a lot. As a new mom, you worry about your baby’s sleeping, eating or crying. Then they grow into active toddlers, and you worry they will fall and hurt themselves (or have a tantrum in public!) I find the key to worrying is to make it productive: use the worrying to find a solution and then let the worry go.

Worries can creep into small business too. I worry when I don’t have enough work, or when I have TOO much work (I know, it’s crazy). But I try to diffuse the worries by being productive, grateful, or reaching out to my network for help.

Do you channel your worries into something more productive?
