Imagine a year with less excuses, drama, and complaints. How many more...
Cures could we develop?
Mouths would we feed?
Dollars might we make?
Problems could we solve?
Hours would we gain?
Patients could we soothe?
Students might we inspire?
Relationships would we build?
How many more good things would happen (for all of us, for each of us)?
So how do we do it?
How do we get rid of these hobblers to a better everything?
First: We accept our personal responsibility for improving things and we practice our self-awareness ... daily.
Then: We encourage the people we care about to do the same thing.
Because we're in all of this together.
And with awareness, comes responsibility.
And as we become more and more self-aware (each of us), we can more consistently remind ourselves and each other how to minimize our excuses, our drama, and our complaints ... all with the goal of a more enjoyable day.
How do we enjoy more?
We embrace our challenges ... because excuses are distraction
Instead of dwelling on the difficulties to accomplishing something, we give our energy and attention to what needs to be done. We stay with how we can ... rather than indulging ... in why we can't.
We choose truth ... because drama is draining.
We commit to holding back on adding unnecessary emotion to a situation. We avoid exaggerating the positive or negative of anything or anyone. More often than not, we're thoughtful, optimistic, and encouraging.
And finally, we create solutions ... because complaints are boring and useless.
We shake off those useless thoughts and statements of entitlement and resignation. When we need to vent ... we do it privately. We stay results-focused and inspire more personal responsibility ... from everyone.
No excuses. No drama. No complaints.
A more enjoyable day for everyone. A beautiful goal.
