Gratitude: An Incredibly Powerful Tool Personally & Professionally

As we wrap up a Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, I wanted to draw specific focus to gratitude and how we can continue to live this valuable and important practice beyond one or a handful of days a year. We don’t need a special occasion or event to practice valuable behaviours that serve us all along our paths to a meaningful life living full out! Did you know that some experts suggest that it takes 2-3 positive emotions to counter balance one negative emotion? How can we take a more purposeful approach to keeping our bucket full? Today I focus on a manner in which we can bridge the value and motivation of practicing gratitude to daily habit.

6 Leadership Lessons from the Park

Some will argue that leadership is taught, others that leadership is inherent in genetics. I believe that we all have the capabilities to lead, but rather it is a CHOICE as to what we do with those capabilities. In fact, it’s a powerful choice. I think that over time we as adults are subjected to situations in which we are clouded or subjected to complacency and exposed to so many alternative choices that we permit ourselves, as well as others to choose ‘hide and cower’ alternatives.

Do you spend the time required to lead?

Can you say that you spend the time required to be the best leader you can be? Or can you say that you provide an environment for your team to work towards mastery?

ASSUME – do you know the acronym?

As kids we learned an acronym for the word ASSUME… to assume is to “make an ass out of you and me”; YET, we still do it! How many times have you made assumptions in relationships, during interactions with others or sadly based on how a person looks or behaves?

Do you have GRIT?

There are many of us that have set goals but have still not been able to celebrate the achievement of them. Why is that? Is it that we set goals that are unachievable or unrealistic? Or goals that are not clearly defined so we don’t have a clear finish line? OR is it possible that we just don’t have what I call “grit”?

Blind spots….do you know yours?

A blind spot by definition is an area where a person’s view is obstructed. As I write this today, I am not referring to a medical blind spot where the optic nerve enters the retina and is insensitive to light but instead places in our lives where our biases and our beliefs about ourselves don’t allow us to see what others can view clearly.

To Change...is to START!

Why is change so hard? I am reflecting on how I believe that many of us want to make a change in our lives but how much we struggle to actually do it. Is it that we don’t have the willpower; that we haven’t yet been scared into it; or that we haven’t found a reason big enough to make the change?

I am who I am today, because...

...it’s exactly where I was meant to be. I think we’ve all had moments in our life where we feel regret. Moments in which we wish we could turn back the clock and live the day out differently…we felt pain, we felt sadness, but ultimately we felt remorse for how life unfolded for you or someone important in your life. For me, I’ve had many of those moments in my life…each and every one etching themselves in my brain.

Live Consciously

I recently had the pleasure of hearing and seeing Gretchen Rubin in Calgary and was astounded by her research that 40% of our day is lived unconsciously through habit. Isn't that incredible? Never mind that we have 40% of our waking hours where we are just floating along but what if we have more bad habits than good? I'm no expert, but I wonder if that number is so high due to information and sensory overload in our fast paced world that we just need something to hold onto for comfort? Something to ground us, even when we know it is not helping us to achieve our personal or professional goals.
