Joel Spolsky's Fire and Motion piece is still timeless. Sometimes I re-read it to remind myself that even the best of us have trouble "crushing it" all the time, and at times just getting *something* done in a day is a great start.

Great post Paulo! I am someone who identifies with hesitating before it's perfect. And your list of strategies resonates very strongly with me.

In particular, I've never heard Feed Your Own Feedback Loop stated that way but I completely agree. I recently started creating "callouts" in my journal to highlight when I did something great, accomplished something hard, or noticed that something I did was a source of positive energy (I did the same for negative sources of energy). Makes a great way to review these highlights at the end of the week.
