It’s a new year! What a great time to hit the office with a new attitude. It’s never too late to re-make yourself at work. Have you fallen behind on follow through? Have you dragged into meetings tardy with less than a ‘we can do it’ attitude? Now is your chance to re-think and begin anew. You are one of the lucky ones. You have a job. You are in a great place. There are a lot of positive things happening around you and it is time to start noticing more of the positives and less of the negatives.
You can come up with a few new and innovative ideas. You can tidy up your desk and begin looking more presentable at work. You can intently look into people’s eyes when they are talking to you, listening fervently to what is being said (rather than mind adrift, thinking of your next client or your next meeting). You can leave on time and make that kids sporting event or personal commitment. Make a list of a few things that you’d like to change and start changing. It will give you a fresh outlook and a brighter future. Do not discount the BIG impact of these small changes. Your work life is about the details. Sometimes a caring voice of concern is worth more than the proposal you deliver. People matter. Have you left them behind? Have you started to miss the important aspects of your job?
Step up and start the New Year out with a bang. I know that it will have a dramatic impact and produce results.
