Attention – why it makes all the difference

I recently talked about Attitude being everything. The very next day someone I will call Melissa told me I was completely WRONG! That got me thinking. Was I wrong? Is attitude really working EVERY time? Melissa said that she was under stress and pressure at work and wished she had stayed at home that day. I told her that changing her attitude could make a difference in how she felt. That’s when her big WRONG was fired back. So what do I do when I’m under stress and pressure? I sure am no Wonder [...]

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” – Maya Angelou Your company is restructuring. Some people are laid off. Some are promoted. People are tense, out of their comfort zones and motivation is sneaking out the back door. And you are in the middle of all this.

Do you listen to your body?

Does your day always go according to you plan? Usually not right? We get interrupted constantly and things happen that we had not foreseen. You're at work and your boss asks you to do an urgent presentation. You put your normal work aside and are confident you can get this finished within the limited time.
