I used to be the post it note queen. I had stacks of pads, I'm not sure why, and most predate my divorce and reentry into the workplace. So I've been schlepping them to work as I find them around the house. Recently I found a pad with some notes on it, from one of those times I was struggling. I don't know where I got it, but I will pass it along.
What is going well for you?
What are you trying to ignore?
What is boring you?
How do you want to be remembered?
Who do you love?
What is next?
What I do remember is that when you're struggling you need to pay attention to what is going well, because too often we overlook it. We need to acknowledge it.
