In this episode we share a 2-part practice from Kel and a saying from Karen’s mom, to help you challenge your toxic relationship to the academy and gain clarity about how best to move forward. Kel tells you how to draw a mental map (or a physical map) of your work spaces so you can check in on your own bodily and emotional reactions to get a more precise sense of where things “hurt” in your job; and then, how to bring in a talisman of joy to remind you that you can feel joy and that you’re entitled to. This 2-part practice helps you reclaim agency vis-a-vis your work and get accuracy about what parts you love or hate and need to change. Then we turn to Karen’s mom’s aphorism: don’t be a victim of your lesser talents. We talk how your view of your talents (ie, skills) can evolve from greater to lesser (and vice versa) as your life values change – and letting them change is the key to moving forward!
