Thought of the Week- Play the Long Game.

What is seen as failure today may become little more than an impediment on a longer road.

It is vital that we look at our successes and setbacks through the appropriate lens. Learn from both and you will be a better person and leader.

Do this and your future will be bright. Shine on.

Onwards!

Thought of the Week – Grit Matters

This week I read an article that stated that grit matters more than previously thought. I can tell you that grit is central to ongoing success. As the saying goes; you get knocked down seven times, you get up eight times. That’s grit at work.

My thought of the week is the in today’s fragile age is that the one with the deepest grit reserves will come through while others who are equally intelligent but lacking grit will fail. Take a moment and figure out how you can develop your grit prowess. It will serve you well.

Thought of the Week- Sleepwalking

How many times in your career have you found yourself sleepwalking on the job? It could also be termed as being on auto pilot, phoning it in, giving the old college try or simply just getting on to get on.   Sleepwalking takes the passion out of what you do.  Passion and focus is what enhances our results.

However, you want to phrase it, sleepwalking at work is not only dangerous for your career but could possibly be a detriment to your everyday life.  If you sleepwalk at work you are likely to allow this mentality to spill over into your personal life, compounding the problem.

My thought of the week is to eliminate sleepwalking. To do this you need purpose and see the things you do as important. Take a moment and reflect if you are operating with full awareness and that your auto pilot is disengaged?  Review your goals.  Make sure you have them, track them and update them periodically. Assess your workload and make sure that you are allocating time to making the important things happen. Do not allow yourself to become overwhelmed in the small stuff. Don’t let sleepwalking flourish. Take control and banish sleepwalking. Your team and company will appreciate you for it.

Onwards!

Thought of the Week- Mouthbreathers Should Be Set Free

There are simply too many mouth breathers and too much negativity, anger, jealously and outright hatred in the world.

My thought of the week is that we need to set the mouth breathers free. Take a moment and review how you represent yourself? Are you positive, upbeat and encouraging in your daily interactions? And just as important if you have nothing positive to say, do you do just that.

Onwards!
Dh
