Sometimes, Things Are Strained

Your emotions and what is happening in the environment you work in are not constant. They are frequently changing. It makes sense that they affect your experience of work and managing.

When you or your environment become strained what do you attribute it to? Are you even aware of the strain or do you react to it without identifying the factors that are causing it? Here is another place where it behooves you to pause and assess. By being aware of your emotions and environment and their effects on what you are feeling, you can deal with the strain head-on, instead of being victim to it.

Are You Tired?

Are you feeling tired lately? There are many reasons and ways you can end up tired. There are obvious physical reasons – you are not getting enough sleep, you are pushing your body too far or you are expending more energy than you have. There are other reasons as well – stress is getting the better of you, a difficult situation is draining your energy or you are neglecting balance in your life.

When you are tired, take a moment to determine the cause. Then, you can take action that is appropriate for the situation. If you are physically tired, you can get sleep or replenish yourself physically. If there is another reason, you can do what is needed to replenish your energy and balance.

Best to pay attention. Keep your performance high and respond intelligently when you are tired.
