Seeing What Isn’t There

Monday, October 10th, 2011

* Transcription

Thank God it’s Monday!® People aren’t hired because they can do the job. Most who didn’t get the job could’ve fulfilled the job description easily. The people who are hired are those who demonstrate the ability to see what isn’t there, and should be, and make it happen. Now, that’s job security.

Saying something like, “nobody told me” or “it’s not in my job description” is a first class ticket to the unemployment line. Instead, if you see something that needs to be done, don’t put a note in the suggestion box—step up and make it happen. Think like a leader. Leadership is not a position; it’s a way of being.

Develop a reputation for seeing what isn’t there and making it happen and you’ll be amazed at all the doors swinging open for you.

Have a great Monday!

Appreciation

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Thank God it’s Monday!™ “Nobody appreciates me.” “I never get a pat on the back for a job well done.” We’ve heard all these complaints before and most of us have even given those from time to time. It’s no fun to feel unappreciated. But the answer, believe me, is NOT to complain about it. The answer is to become part of the solution.

Most under-appreciated employees are not alone in their misery. They’re usually part of a workplace with no culture of appreciation. The best thing you can do in this situation is to help create that culture. Express appreciation at least 20 times today, not just for what people do around you, but for who they are. Watch the faces of people whose days are made by your simple act of kindness. In no time at all, you will find yourself on the receiving end. When you help to create a culture of appreciation, everybody wins.

Have a great Monday!

Make Your Life Boil

Monday, September 5th, 2011

* Transcription

Thank God it’s Monday!™ Water begins to boil at 212 degrees. Meaning, at 211 degrees the water is really hot. But one degree, one single degree, marks this momentous distinction.

Imagine for a second that you’d never seen water boil. Would you suspect this feat to be possible? If you’d never experienced boiling, how would you imagine the concept of boiling?

Take this model and apply it in your own life. Perhaps you need just one degree more, and then you’ll boil with success! Imagine that. Where are the sources of heat in your life that you haven’t tapped into? How can you push through just one small degree to bring your life to a state of boiling and making things happen?

Have a great Monday!

Spin Around and Smile

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Thank God it’s Monday!™ Children up to preschool age are said to laugh 150-300 times daily, while adults laugh only 15 times a day!

Sure, as we grow older we may discover that we are not as innately happy as a toddler, but we can decide to smile. In fact, just doing so has been proven to instill happiness. In the late 80’s for instance, a study was conducted wherein students were asked to make a “u” or an “e” sound and record how they felt. Unsurprisingly, subjects that made the “e” sound reported feeling much happier than their counterparts, because they were smiling as a result.

So smile. Smile right now. Smile at lunch. Spin around in a circle and smile. Feeling better? I thought so. Create a great Monday!

Embrace Change

Monday, July 11th, 2011

* Transcription

Thank God it’s Monday!™ Change is rapid. Change is accelerating exponentially. In fact, it is not too outrageous to assume that today’s jobs will not even exist 10 years from now… and you can’t do a darn thing about it.

No person is guaranteed a job, but you can guarantee your employability. The military strategist Sun Tsu said, “In times of peace, prepare for war, and in times of war, prepare for peace.” You may not love the change. You may not have had anything to do with the change, but at the end of the day, it is your job to make the transition to change, and make you a better you.

Have a great Monday!
