“By giving our best we are delivering the goods.” #bgdtcoaching.
There can be many obstacles along the path we have chosen to walk. At times these may take the size of small stones in the shoe and progress continues. On occasions we might be forced to linger longer as more concentrated efforts are needed before we resume our journey.
Delivering the goods in the form of realizing our goals is in any case a question of handling whatever life puts before us. Distractions, upsets and the like have as much power over the moment as we choose to assign to them. They may influence us yet, as ever, we can decided to remain focused on our objective rather than get caught up in time-consuming and non-strategic activities.
Delivering the goods then, from this perspective, is very much about how we approach each moment of the day. Our work, albeit undertaken in any number of diverse environments, is to get the job done and by giving our best we are delivering the goods.
Other influences of course also impact on our performance. Things such as our health, sense of tranquillity, and perceived happiness, for example, naturally shape not only how we undertake our tasks, but at times whether we are successful in delivering the goods.
By getting to the end of this post we have both managed to complete the task as writer and reader. Thanks for your part in delivering the goods.
