Procrastination is one’s inability to deal with emotions connected to doing or not doing what’s needed.
If you tweet a million times does not guarantee you that you will be a millionaire neither does being a millionaire guarantee you a million subscribers on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. One has to decide on selecting and achieving the right ‘million’ first which can then potentially drive other figures if important.
What kind of change is happening around you (positive or negative) – is it slow, accelerating or exponential?
The way you respond to the change should be proportional to the pace of the change itself.
People pay for solutions and not for problems
Indecision in making a decision is a decision.
Are you having fun at work? My answer to this question was ‘Yes’ because I get to work with a good team, I am working on exciting programs that will make a huge impact, I am passionate about what I do, and overall, I am having a good time doing it.
As I wanted to synthesise this further – which led me to Google and Twitter – I landed on this NY Times article by Catherine Price. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/12/23/well/mind/having-fun-suceeding-coronavirus-pandemic.html
Catherine defines ‘true fun’ as when there is a confluence of three psychological states called playfulness, connection and flow.
This resonates with me as I can use this definition in all areas of my life. In light of the above definition – I am having fun at work as I have autonomy and creative license to bring playfulness in my work and team, I feel connected with my team and stakeholders and the time goes quickly (flow) as I find engaged and focused on driving outputs and helping my customers.
What’s your take on ‘fun’ at work?
We can bring more life experiences together through collaboration, enabling knowledge sharing and creativity, leading to innovative solutions. Collaboration also leads to better buy-in and support for change.
Today’s is India’s 75th Independence Day. I have read 100’s of messages on social media and SMS from proud Indian’s celebrating in their own ways – proudly sharing the tri-color. This has got me thinking about the meaning of ‘independence’. This has me pondering about people beginning the revolt over 160 years towards an independent India!
They would have become independent over their fears first. They moved forward despite the fears.
What’s independence for you? What fears are you overcoming?
Don’t carry the guilt of oversharing on socials – you just have more things to talk about then others 😊.
Everyone wants to feel valued and heard. Good Leaders provide their teams/communities with the opportunities to be seen, regularly engages them and have the necessary support mechanisms in place.
When leaders don’t provide this opportunity, people will talk behind their backs. More often than not, it will be a negative talk.
