Got some bad news at work today. Not a fun convo for my boss to have w/ myself and my 6 counterparts. We dipped pretty badly in a weekly measurement we get - and as whole none of us were happy. Some of us disappointed , some of us pissed, some of us just perplexed, and some just down right speechless.
However, at the end of the day the question really is - what change will you make tomorrow. In my line of business - I don't have time to sulk, be angry, or be all up in my feelings. I only have 1 choice - to make a difference and fix it.
It's frustrating - yes. But the longer I sit and think about how badly we performed, the longer it will STAY BAD. However, if I really dig deep, find the holes, plug em up and move on with my life - the faster we will get those numbers back on track.
When Jesus told the church to choose leaders & elders. He instructed them to choose the ones that were level headed, mature, and are on track. As a leader at work - I have to be the same - mature and not get emotional about the roller coaster of good and bad performance. I must step up to the place and take action! And that's exactly what I'm going to do! I don't have time to feel any type of way about it - I must be objective! It's only about getting results and figuring out the best plan to get there.
