Deciding what to post today took me a bit. I have several drafted topics. However before posting I wait to be certain I’m sharing something that will be useful. If I don’t have 100% intuitive confirmation, I will not post. That is my process for creating and developing presentations, projects and training modules.
In short ” It needs to feel right, I need to be at ease and believe 100% in the project’
So as our weekend is coming to an end and we turn our attention to starting a new work week, I encourage you to seek the many opportunities to show KINDNESS.
Yes, KINDNESS. Somewhere along the way we get caught up in what some people call the Rat Race. I call it the ROUTINE VORTEX. In these stages we have forgotten simple manners of KINDNESS.
Try these simple ways to show kindness even to co-workers that aren’t the most let’s say friendly:
- Good Morning!
- How are you ?
- Make the coffee.
- Happy Monday!
- Thank you.
- Have a nice evening!
- Goodbye !
- See you tomorrow !
If you’re asking yourself, Really? This is common sense! These work environments don’t exist! Unfortunately and sadly my friends, it’s very true, they do exist. But you don’t have to take part in this draining energy.
I challenge you to change your mindset this week. One thing for sure-don’t expect anything in return. Some people will respond with delight, others will be shocked or indifferent and some may even look at you a little strange.
The key to sustain this mindset is to remember this – it’s not about them, it’s about you. Are you willing to be the one that brings light and joy back into your surroundings? Or are you content being like everyone else? It’s your choice.
BECAUSE AT THE END WHAT REALLY MATTERS IS:
- What kind of energy you brought to the spaces you occupied.
WHAT PEOPLE WILL TALK ABOUT WHEN YOU MOVE ON IS:
- How you filled the air with your presence.
- How you made them feel. (Maya Angelou)
So my friends I won’t overthink what topic to share today. Because at the end all I really want you to know is that:
I believe in you – I’m proud of what you have accomplished – You are amazing and you will make great things happen this week – I have faith in your process, in your goals and your dreams. DON’T GIVE UP !!! KEEP MOVING FORWARD !!!
