The first week of my new job was…interesting. Day one I wondered what the hell I had gotten myself into. Day two I was obsessing over these issues that I’d heard about…but never experienced. By the end of these two very long days I sat in my hotel room and reflected on my state of mind. Given what my blog is about it was a good time to harness a Simple Step.
As I wrote down my thoughts I decided to a “pros & con’s” list. Here is what is looked like:
|Employees are loyal to the company
and to the owners.
|Owners are involved in every aspect
of the business.
|Staff is focused on doing “what’s right”|
|Staff appreciate that I understand the
|Everyone is passionate about the company,
their role & doing the best that they can.
|When I ask questions there is an open dialogue.|
Notice anything? When I allowed my head to clear I realized that there wasn’t a “con” that I could think of. Those first couple days were more about my adjusting to working again and working for a smaller company.
What are you doing that is keeping you from focusing on the positive aspects of your life? Try the Simple Step that I did and see what adding a little perspective will do for you!
When I changed my thoughts to focus on all of the “Pros” I was able to relax and enjoy the rest of my week. When I flew home last Thursday night I was exhausted and exhilarated! Now that is what I call a great start!
