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. ☺

Curiosity can do a lot more than kill the cat. Curiosity is often underestimated in the power it has to positively influence your life and work. Curiosity involves seeking. Seeking leads to growth, new experiences and expanding your horizons.
How curious are you?

Are you looking for a sense of security and knowing in the world? If you are, you can sometimes rush things by letting society tell you who you should be. Society certainly has life mapped out, if you want to take that path.
Letting someone or something else “place” you in the world doesn’t always work out. It can appear to be safe and certain, that’s true. However, your journey is meant to be walked by you; not someone else. When you walk your journey and make your own choices, there may be challenges, but you have a greater chance of reaching fulfillment in your life.
Chart your own path. Being true to yourself increases your chances of being “placed” in just the right place for you.

Oh, if life was a smooth ride without discomfort. Not! Your level of comfort with discomfort is a factor in your ability to cope and thrive in life and work. There are numerous reactions you can have to being uncomfortable – anxiety, fear and avoidance are a few.
There are benefits to developing a response to discomfort that serves you, rather than only reacting. This starts with facing your emotion of discomfort. Look it in the eye and acknowledge it. Then, break it down in pieces – what is going on? Decide what its cause is and what you can do about it. As you do this over time, being uncomfortable will start to lose its power. You may even get comfortable with being uncomfortable! ☺
