Bringing our all to the task

October 27, 2019

It is probably fair to suggest bringing our all to the task we are faced with is as much a mindset as an approach to work.

Once we’ve decided to move forward with our plans, bringing our all to the task seems a pretty sensible thing to do.

We may feel caution is appropriate yet holding back from bringing our all to the task is a way of hindering our eventual success.

Putting our all into each action ensures we remain true to our objectives and life in every moment. Nobody can ever accuse us of doing things half-heartedly when we go about bringing our all to the task before us.

Any doubts about our commitment to joint-venture or activities of collaboration are likewise put to bed if we are bringing our all to the task in question. Whether it is sufficient is, of course, another matter.

Seeing success before us

October 24, 2019

Being clear about what we wish to achieve and knowing why we want what we want are crucial elements of seeing success before us.

Having clarity regarding these points permits us to make decisions aligned with our specific objectives rather than according to the whims of the day or the input of others.

Seeing success before us is also a great motivator for those instances we are required to face challenges and setbacks. In a sense, by seeing success before us we have a guiding light through testing times.

Similarly, seeing success before us gives us a tangible target to aim for in all our endeavours. It keeps our efforts focused on what is important to us and offers input in terms of how effective our input is moment by moment.

Other considerations concerning seeing success before us are no doubt equally worthy of reflection. To share your ideas on the issue of seeing success before us, please leave a comment below.

Kindest regards.

Doing what needs to be done

October 17, 2019

We are all probably facing numerous outstanding tasks, some of our choosing and others not so, yet doing what needs to be done is a necessary part of achieving anything.

In certain instances, our burdens, chores, jobs or whatever we decide to call them, can be delegated. And a few items may even be cancelled if we deem them no longer crucial to reaching our goals.

But then other things remain before us and require our input.

Procrastinating, delaying the time we get around to doing what needs to be done, unfortunately, does not permit us to escape the inevitable ‘moment of action’.

Jumping in and just doing what needs to be done is another option.

How we manage the issue of doing what needs to be done is, quite rightly, a personal matter. Our approach will, ideally, best suit our mindset concerning commitments, work and life in general.

In any case, and regardless of how we go about doing what needs to be done, let me thank you for finding time in your schedule today to read this post.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

Engaging wholly with our goal

October 10, 2019

Without engaging wholly with our goal there is little chance of us achieving it. Of course, this idea is so obvious it probably doesn’t need to be stated.

In any case, once we’ve taken the time to set down our objectives it would be silly not to go about engaging wholly with our goal.

Engaging wholly with our goal involves a variety of actions, including:

a) Prioritizing efforts designed to achieve certain objectives;

b) Being disciplined to respect our priorities;

c) Being sage enough to learn from the moments we lose direction.

Other actions are surely equally valid and, as ever, if you have a system producing the desired result you probably should continue with it.

Kindest regards.

Dismissing the negativity from around us

October 6, 2019

Without judging, we always have the option of dismissing the negativity from around us. Dealing with life’s challenges is certainly tough enough as it is without having to wade through the waters of negativity.

The action of dismissing the negativity from around us could involve this series of simple steps:

1) Clarify our definitions of positivity and negativity;

2) Set personal tolerance levels concerning what we are prepared to accept;

3) Remind ourselves of the life we are striving to create;

4) Refuse to let others dictate our mindset or outlook despite their behaviour or words.

Dismissing the negativity from around us goes a long way to ensure we face daily life in, at least, a neutral manner. And if some people resent or get offended by our position, well that is their problem rather than ours, no?

To share your input on the issue raised here, please leave a comment below. And feel free to like/share this ‘Dismissing the negativity from around us‘ post.

Seeing things as they are

September 12, 2019

Choosing to see things as we wish them to be is an option but so is seeing things as they are. Each has consequences.

The first may involve viewing life through rose-tinted lenses. The world is ours and our input keeps the world spinning. ‘Seeing things as they are’ offers a more balanced outlook. Some things are good, others bad and the majority probably neutral. And we are a piece of the world, not its owner.

For now, let’s focus on what it means to go about seeing things as they are. In the first instance, we have the possibility to use past experiences as learning points for the present and future. The positive and negative from what has occurred before can be added to our current thinking to provide depth.

When seeing things as they are we have the chance to evaluate various perspectives without worrying about being biased toward any one viewpoint. When a decision eventually needs to be made, we are able to use our impartial judgement coupled with personal objectives aligned with our values.

Seeing things as they are may, at times, require us to accept the discomfort that comes from embracing ‘what is’ rather than ‘what we would like’. Even so, we can take heart from knowing we are not deluding or cheating ourselves as we move along the path of life.

Kindest regards.

Leading ourselves before we attempt to lead others

August 18, 2019

Leadership is a subject filled with many varying opinions yet, for now, let’s consider the idea of ‘leading ourselves before we attempt to lead others’.

Taking up the responsibility to organize all those elements of our life directly under our control is a form of leading ourselves before we attempt to lead others. It is a way of demonstrating, firstly to ourselves and secondly to others, we are capable of leading.

Once we become accustomed to leading ourselves before we attempt to lead others, the subsequent step of leading others will occur naturally. We shouldn’t be afraid to defend our efforts, especially in the face of those who accuse us of putting our own interests first.

With our own ‘house in order’, we can begin the task of attempting to lead others.

As the issue of leadership is indeed so vast, your input on the idea of leading ourselves before we attempt to lead others would be most welcomed. Accordingly, please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts by leaving a comment below.

Thanks in advance and thanks also for taking time to read this ‘Leading ourselves before we attempt to lead others’ post today.

Kindest regards.

Brian.
