Everyday.

Most days, I send gratitude group text to my immediate family.   Sometimes one of my sons will reply with something he’s thankful for, but often it’s just me.

This tiny habit helps set my mood to a good one.  And often changes it from a bad one.

Turns out, it’s hard for me to remember my struggles at the same time I’m being grateful.

Happy Thanksgiving everyday.

Managing conflict.

I am a conflict-allergic manager.

But I’ve found another way:  Instead of confronting bad behavior, I compliment good behaviors instead.

Has almost the same outcome in results.

Ironic.

I got an auto-response from one of my vendors:

“…I’m out of the office at Customer Service training and won’t be back until Tuesday, November 27th.”

Hello?

Customer needing service here.

Anyone?

 

Why wait?

Something that seems out of the blue to the rest of us, has likely been long overdue.

Those who drop out, change careers and skydive may seem brazen and reckless.  But it’s far more likely that they’ve been hesitant and scared to make their move.

This blog is something I’ve been considering for a while.

It sure would’ve been easier to skip the mulling, fear and self-doubt and have done it sooner.
