Happy on the Journey

Happy on the Journey.  Seriously?

It can certainly feel like forever as we work toward our goal or end game, right? Time seems to pass so slowly and it seems as if we’ll never get there.

The journey, though, is an education in itself, so what can we do to enjoy it more?

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

1. What are you grateful for?

List the people, furbabies & material items you’re grateful for. Count your current blessings.

2.  What’s one important lesson learned today?

Is there something that occurred today (good or bad) that taught you something? Count it all joy.  Whether it’s a good or bad experience, the Lord is developing character traits in you that can be used for good.  And if you allow it, all of your bad habits will be eliminated, one by one.

3.  When you look back one year from today, what will you see?

There’s no reason to wait to begin moving toward the dream that God has placed on your heart and in your mind. Go for it! One year from now, you’ll be amazed at your progress.

4.  Have you made some progress already?

If so, write it down on your computer, in a notebook or create a journal to track your moments. And don’t forget to celebrate your progress along the way.

With effort and an “I can do it!” attitude, you will make it. Keep the faith and keep going forward.

 

Business Love

Working for an employer who truly cares about your well being is truly glorious. I worked for a company in New Jersey where the employees gathered in the break room every morning before the workday began to pass pleasantries and to share family news.

Our vice president walked throughout the office buildings and factory several times during the day to touch base with the supervisors and employees.  When Secretaries/Administrative Day arrived, the staff was taken out to lunch and given gifts of appreciation.

The feeling of family was very strong here.

As I remember back, I understand how rare this is today. Yet, this type of atmosphere can be created easily. It should begin at the top but often starts with the employees.  When birthdays and anniversaries are celebrated, a feeling of warmth overtakes the business and it becomes a place you want to get up and go to day after day.

Love and caring truly make a difference in our everyday worklife.

Why isn’t the culture of caring and love exist in most businesses today?  I guess one of the reasons is if you haven’t experienced this type of workplace, you really think the opposite is the norm. But it can begin with one person who cares.  One person who decides to change it for the good.

A culture of caring and compassion makes for a happier workplace.  Walls come tumbling down and people decide to work well together. Being highly productive becomes a source of pride because the employees want to work hard for a company who respects and cares about them.

How can you help your company change to a more positive culture today? What one step will you take to change?
