"If you view all the things that happen to you, both good and bad, as opportunities, then you operate out of a higher level of consciousness." ~ Les Brown

Ever Looked At Life Through Giggle Goggles?

One of the best tools for keeping things in perspective is humor. Learn to laugh at the situation and at yourself. Humor leads to improved productivity.

There are facts, and then there's your interpretation of these facts. The actions you take -- and the results you produce -- are completely dependent on how you see the facts. You can focus on the best in every situation or you can focus on the worst. There's a problem in every opportunity and an opportunity in every problem. Interpret the facts negatively and you're left with little power and fewer opportunities. Change your point of view and you're empowered to create the best results possible -- no matter the circumstance.

Use humor when a sticky situation needs a lube. Humor greases all wheels.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Attitude Color: Look for the Best in Every Situation -- the Opportunity in Every Problem.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. Are you quick to laugh or quick to scowl?
  3. Doesn't your work go better when you smile?
  5. What's coming up soon that will benefit from a healthy dose of laughter?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Attitude Factor 3E? (Look for the Best in Every Situation -- the Opportunity in Every Problem.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (3E rated 8 or better) suggests that even in the middle of everything going wrong, and nothing going right, your reaction is to still look for the best you can salvage from the situation. You understand that not everything is going to work out exactly as you would like. When you're not happy with a situation, you rise above the circumstances and find a way to improve it. You can take numerous rejections without giving up. When you do not first succeed, you see it as a learning opportunity, and go out and do better next time.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who has few skills for getting through the tough times. You don't look for the silver linings during hard times. Instead, you tend to see what's wrong rather than what's right. Your first reaction is to judge people and situations from a negative or critical perspective. It takes you a long time to get over setbacks and rejections. When taken to the extreme, you see life as one big problem that you have to suffer through. When you do not first succeed, you usually just give up.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 3E more frequently?

You have more power. A mistake or a setback is a chance to do better the next time. You thrive on chaos.

You accumulate performance positives like "Optimistic, Undaunted and Hopeful" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 3E?

You have less power. Your only response to mistakes and setbacks is to try to suffer through them.

Negatives like "Pessimistic, Critical and Depressed" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"You should call this the Survival Edge..."

I've taken a dozen time management courses and read 20 books on improving my time management and organization skills. This goes WAY beyond anything I could ever hope for. It gave me a serious edge when I came up for my last job review, not to mention the confidence I now have.
