Pictured above—The number of bodies it takes to keep a corporate flight department up in the air. Remember, you’re not the center of any universe. No matter how much you may perceive you are carrying the load at times, you’re not the only one doing work. If you feel overwhelmed, look around and make a list of all the things the people in your life are doing on their end. Look close and don’t minimize. If you find yourself getting sucked into a victim box, get out as soon as possible; it’s a black hole.

If something is out of balance, don’t complain about it. Spend your energy doing whatever it takes to get it back into the middle.
