How to manage our daily outlook

July 20, 2017

 

Irrespective of where we are, what we are doing and even why we are doing it, learning how to manage our daily outlook will play a large role in the way we experience the day. The exercise, however, can last a lifetime or be completed in the blink of an eye.

As ever, the speed of acquisition is a personal matter. And clarity concerning the benefits associated with a managed daily outlook is perhaps the first step to developing this desirable skill.

We could think of a boat drifting without direction. Any wave, current or wind would move the vessel. Yet unless the destination is unimportant, such a journey appears pointless. In a similar fashion, our outlook is a point of reference for the flow of the day.

Asking ourselves how to manage our daily outlook opens the mind to reflection. We might discover in the process a certain propensity towards one or more specific methods.

Whether it be focusing on goals to the exclusion of all else around us or using our time as constructively as possible across a range of endeavours, we need to be comfortable with any eventual changes we wish or need to implement as a result of our efforts.

If you’d like to ponder how to manage your daily outlook as part of a complimentary coaching session, via Skype or Google+ hangout, please get in touch.

In the meantime, thanks for reading this ‘How to manage our daily outlook’ post.

Question of perspectives

December 20, 2015

Perspective of stairs

Few things in life escape being classified loosely as a question of perspectives. How we feel about something, or someone, often depends on the moment together with a whole host of supporting factors.

The answer ‘A question of perspectives” might be given to explain a multitude of situations in meetings around the world. And possibly rightly so. What is good for this moment may be poor for that one and vice versa. Absolutes appear rare in today’s world.

Looking at challenges and opportunities alike often comes down to a question of perspectives. Great strides taking us forward are found at times only after we have taken two steps backwards. Clarity of choices comes with the courage to choose, so to speak.

Yet the result perhaps turns out to be less than wonderful if measured against what would have occurred had we remained where we were initially. A question of perspectives indeed. And on and on we can go. Giving ourselves time to explore an issue is itself a question of perspectives.

On the one hand it could be right for us to just ‘live the moment’, letting go of wanting to analyse away what is before us. On the other hand, reflection allows us to see so much more of an issue. Finding the right balance is a question of perspectives.
