Day 12. HAPPY AT WORK

Tonight for your vision quest please listen to the story “what would you be happy to die doing”

DAY 12 The Learning

YOUR ENJOYMENT OF YOUR WORK IS A DIRECT REFLECTION OF YOUR COMPETENCE AT WORK

A Master in the art of Living 

Draws no sharp distinction 

Between their work and their play 

Their labour and their leisure 

Their minds and their bodies 

Their education or their recreation. 

They hardly know which is which. 

They simply pursue their vision 

Of excellence 

Through whatever they are doing

And leave others to determine 

Whether they are working or playing. 

To themselves, it always seems 

As if they are doing both.

RED FLAGS AND SMART PREVENTION

HOW TO DO WHAT YOU DON’T WANT TO DO – EXCELLENTLY…

LISTEN ON TUNES

BEING HAPPY AT WORK – A GREAT LEADER NEVER REACTS

There are only two things make leaders react: guilt (grief) from the past or fear of the future. In the present neither exist. A leader never reacts. If they react they are in fear or guilt. Either of which destroys trust. The only thing that triggers leaders to be in reaction is one of those two. Otherwise, in leadership there is no need for emotion, just action. For example: to fix problem then solve a problem and have another coffee or herbal tea. However, reaction makes one problem into two problems: one is the original problem that needs a fix, which, without emotion is usually easy, and second is putting out the fire which is the result of the reaction in emotion which starts a fire amongst people, hence another problem that needs fixing. This fire becomes the bigger problem – a human emotional problem that didn’t help solve the first problem and now creates the need for smoochy moochy emotional interactions that are completely distracting from the solution to the next problem to which the reactive leader turns into two more. Sounds like the spread of covid right? Well that’s exactly why some people who keep their cool and don’t get emotionally tangled up in ridiculous levels of social interaction get more done and can scale their leadership and others spend 90% of their time trying to shmooze people into action. Red flags are pre- reaction warnings. Stay cool – reaction adds problem. You don’t need two problems. One is enough. A well balanced individual who leads offers friends and family a red flag. If they are getting grumpy one of their children might bring it out and place it on the table. If they are talking about work too much at home, their partner has the work red flag. If they are getting stressed, a friend might hold a red flag. I really think doing this with real red flags makes the early warning a fun and friendly act.


Enjoying what you do is an important part of doing ok. But Loving what you do and doing what you love is the secret to being amazing, exceptional, excellent and being paid a fortune for it…
