What if my boss had not gotten transferred, I would have gotten promoted this year.  What if logistics hadn't missed that shipment to my client, I would have made my quota.  What if I had married Sean instead of Rufus, I would be living with the rich and famous.


Life is full of what if's. What ifs do nothing more than keep you stuck in the past.  You can't drive forward by hanging on to the past.  Think about it.  How far could you drive your car forward on I-95 by looking in your rear view mirror?

On a flight to Dallas on Southwest Airlines, I observed  an off duty flight attendant, who was on personal travel, assist a passenger in opening a stuck luggage compartment.  No one knew she worked for Southwest until she identified herself.  I certainly was impressed and I'm sure other passengers were too with this attendants willingness to go the extra mile in her off time.

How do you motivate your employees to do work that is not necessarily required of them?  One strategy is to help each team member feel that what they do makes a difference to your organization and to others.  Studies have shown that when employees know that their work efforts are making an impact, it gives them a sense of satisfaction and a desire to perform at a higher level.  What can you do to show them that their work efforts are making an impact?

Cie, how can I get glad?  When you begin to view problems as a series of opportunities.  What kind of opportunities do problems provide?  There are opportunities to be of service to others; to change a pattern of behavior; and even opportunities to do the impossible. Here are two examples of opportunities that problems made possible.

 I'm feeling good from my head to my shoes

Know where I'm going and I know what to do

I tied up my point of view

I got a new attitude

(Lyrics from Patti LaBelle's song "New Attitude")

When a new year begins, we often make declarations that we're going to change certain behaviors.  However, most of us return to the following year with the same old behaviors.  Perhaps it's because we failed to change our attitudes toward our behaviors.  Last year's attitudes will simply lead us to continue to re-enact last year's behaviors.  Behaviors we said we would change.
