Many people want to be the best at something, sometimes they even try to be the best in all. By itself, being the best is fine and commendable to have the drive to improve himself/herself. The catch comes the people start comparing their improvement to other people and this catch is because each one of us is different, so we are comparing apple and pineapple. Being the best and working to improve yourself, in anyway in a resourceful way, is about improving yourself based on what you were yesterday. The person to beat, in a matter of speaking, is yourself. Welcome change and commit yourself to CANI (Constant And Never-ending Improvement)! CANI is about experimentation, innovative choice and creative thinking. It is about understanding we will have setbacks as part of growth. It is about learning from all these setbacks how to move forward.
After a good working week, it is important to take a break. In addition to having fun and resting, taking a break out of the work you love doing, allows you to re-engage with a new perspective and new ideas. If you don’t love your work, maybe you could find out what you love doing and maybe getting a new job.
Sometimes, we get caught in the daily activities, processes and troubleshooting whatever needs to be resolved. Then again, sometimes the best way to get out of the rot is to clear your mind and start working in a new blank paper. Put what you know aside and start writing new ideas.
Our social environment is constantly pushing each one of us to keep improving our professional expertise, knowledge and experience. Little or no effort is put to improve our personal, self-development, finding more about ourselves, what make is tick, new personal experiences, new ways of thinking, how we can open our mind to new ideas, opportunities and possibilities. When was the last time you did something to improve yourself, to take yourself to your next level?
There is a thinking principle that says “What you focus on is what you get to the exclusion of everything else.” Some translation to the above are: .- When you focus on problems, you find problem to the exclusion of all solutions .- When you focus on solutions, you find solutions to the exclusion of all problems What do you focus in your job, career, business, life?
The longer you take to re-pay a bank loan, the more interest you will pay. Likewise, the longer you take to work and resolve an issue/problem, the harder it will be! Don’t leave it for tomorrow. Do it today!
