As I watched the sunrise this morning, I reflected on the key learnings for me this week:
1. Practice the art of listening: being the loudest, always right, or closed minded will get you no where fast. Instead be collaborative, have positive intent, and observant… practice this and you might see changes in your daily interactions with others.
2. Learn to let go: be aware when a path is closing or an opportunity you thought was “perfect” is not panning out as expected. The faster you realize you need to pivot, the sooner you can self-reflect, learn from the experience, and identify a new route.
3. Don’t make assumptions: rumors, bias opinions, and lack of clarity drives reactive behavior. Seek answers by asking “the right” questions to validate your thoughts. If conflict is found, be proactive and work through any misunderstanding. I promise this will solve 99% of your problems.
Make today awesome.
