Focus on 2007December 27, 2006
Hope you are all having a great Christmas – we are!! This is just a quick post, but I wanted to flag up a superb post on the excellent lifehack.org website. It is looking forward to 2007 and the resolutions people will make…. From the post:
“Deficit thinking is an ingrained habit of focusing on gaps and weaknesses (the deficit) instead of what’s working (and can be made to work still better). It’s focusing on what you can’t do, not what you can. Instead of your dreams and ambitions propelling you forward, you let the gap between your current state and your desires become a source of frustration and depression. It’s the old business of seeing the glass as half empty”.
So, don’t get down about stuff you cannot and probably will not do (I bet these are things which you have been, and I admit it, me too, trying to change for years!). Instead look at the stuff you love and do brilliantly and try and leverage these to move forward!
How about you? 2007 is the year
