Recently I had an interaction with someone in a business I own. Some people had pointed out some challenges and this person was freaking out a bit.
“We’ve already identified those challenges,” I said. “We’ve diagnosed the issues and we have a strategy to address them,” I continued, “Don’t panic.”
Worry is a useful emotion if it spurs you to look at something critically, to diagnose the problem, to build a solid strategy.
Beyond that it becomes wasted energy and counterproductive.
Decide comes from the Latin root to cut off from. Once you’ve diagnosed the problem and built a strategy to address it, stop worrying. Absolutely look at the results you are getting when executing and question if the strategy is working, but stop questioning the strategy theoretically before you’ve had a chance to execute it and get results.
A while ago I encouraged my daughter Zara not to listen to a friend who wanted her to do something that she didn’t feel good about.
When we focus on a past that we don’t like, we are living in a state where we are hoping an imaginary future will heal a non-existent past.
Recently I was in a situation that wasn’t what I wanted, but there wasn’t anything I could do to change it.
Is it to never stop believing?
If you fill up every area of your life with little regard for the quality of what you’re filling it with, there’s not much room left.
“Fortune favours the bold.”
“Look before you leap.”
So, which one is it???
We all make them.
The thought of hard decisions is often worse than the consequences.
Some people bring magic into your life.
I’m in my office at the moment. This morning I’ve planned next week, had multiple meetings and worked on some strategic moves for my business.
