All Viewpoints Welcome

In this time of polarity, sides are drawn and listening is not always an honored skill. How would our workplace interactions be different, if all viewpoints were welcomed and valued?

For one, we’d have access to a variety and diversity of ideas. We would be more sensitive to and, possibly, understanding of each other. We could synthesize ideas and come up with more creative and sustainable approaches.

With all viewpoints welcome, perhaps we could change our world. ☺

Finding Quiet

What are you doing today? Working? Relaxing? On a holiday? Staying busy? Whatever it is, could you stop now and find some quiet if you wanted to? Silence is essential to balance and calm. Each day, make sure you know where and how you can find some quiet and re-center when you want to.

Quiet keeps you whole.

How Do You Describe Your Work?

The way you describe the work you do can offer valuable insights. Work can be described in many ways: the nature of your work (specifics of what you “do”), the emotions you have about your work (love, hate, tolerate) or your goals for your work and career.

Take a moment now and describe your work. See what it reveals and proceed from there.

2. Do something you have never done before.

3. Do something backwards.

4. Go into nature and find five things you have never seen before.

5. Prepare to do something that you have resisted doing in the past.

6. Study an animal – its characteristics and way of being in the world.

7. Develop the least used of your five senses.

8. Read a book about something unknown to you.

9. Create a “stretch” goal that brings you further than you have ever thought of going.

10. Spend an hour on youtube exploring a subject of interest to you.
