3. Try to Avoid Strong Attachment

You frequently take things too personally. But, though it seems otherwise, you do not need to be so emotionally invested to do your job.

Instead, reel in your emotional attachment. This won’t be easy. You may not feel like you are giving it your all when you are not stressed or anxious. Yet, with practice and time, you will actually do a better job.
