A very simple statement to start out the week with and I think we all can take a quick moment right now to think about what is one thing I can do to make this true!
Mondays are always a good day to start new things, especially at work with a new attitude or outlook. There are a few of us out there that actually look forward to Mondays. Those that are lucky and blessed like I am (very thankfully), enjoy what we do and Mondays are a day to get back at it after a well-deserved couple of days off.
Part of what could make this difficult is the job that people are going to. If they are dreading it and don’t enjoy going there, then this quote might just be reversed. It certainly helps to have a place that is enjoyable and exciting, since we do spend so much time there during our lifetime. So I believe it’s never too late to think about what type of career you want to have if you are not currently happy with the one you have. Life goes by too fast to be spending most of our time miserable. Those miserable feelings stick with us wherever we go. When we go home, when we are out with friends, etc., if we are miserable and hate our job it will affect everything we do.
Now that I think about it this probably holds true for many things in our life. The people we hang out with, the television we watch, the things we read, the things we eat, etc. There is a whole bunch of items that it would be good to look at and see which ones we’d be better off without. It’s always a good idea to take an inventory of all those items in our lives and see which ones are helping us get closer to where we want to, the person we want to become, our career wants, our relationships that we want, etc.
Remember, it just doesn’t happen right away as there has to be some thought put into separating the positive & negative things in our lives. But I think it’s worth doing and the sooner the better. I know I’m working on it right now and I know it’s an everyday kind of thing that I must stay focused with. Keep checking back as I will probably get into some specifics soon, maybe here in blog but more probable in one of my podcasts. I’m always open to thoughts and ideas, just share them with me and maybe we can come up with some good ideas together.
