Good morning everyone, my name is Hugh Blane, this is the Monday Morning Minute, and this week I want to ask you, what are you tolerating?
Ladies and gentlemen I get to walk into leader’s offices and ask them how things are going, and I hear a long list of laments, things that are not working well and sometimes those laments involve things that they are tolerating that they shouldn’t be tolerating.
I want to ask you this week, is there anything in your personal life or your professional life that you are tolerating. And if there is, I want to suggest that if you want to have a more effective work week that you have to ameliorate that which you are tolerating. You have to reduce it, you have to manage it, but do not simply tolerate it because if you tolerate it, it will drain you, it will drain your energy, your creativity, your vitality. You’ll just not be a happy camper in the world of work or in the world of your personal life.
This Weeks Challenge:
Identify one thing that you were simply tolerating. Do one thing to manage it to its lowest toleration point possible. If you do this you’re going to have a much more effective work week and you’re going to feel like you’re in control and you’ll be actively managing those things that are draining you. That will lead to a positive week.
That’s the Monday Morning Minute. I hope you have a fabulous week and I’ll see you here next week.
