Manufacture Your Day by FOCUSING ON THE GOOD
If you follow me for a while, you know that I have made it my mission to humanize our manufacturing workplaces. It is very strange but Covid19 seems to help me with that.
If the self-worth of managers, supervisors and the workforce is at risk, so is the net-worth of the organization. Fear is a terrible motivator for manufacturing excellence.
The pressure is high and the future is uncertain. I hear the voices of the people in this industry, and I hear them loud and clear. There is a collective energy of fear in the world, but there are some people who choose light rather than darkness. Which one will you choose?
Most people are totally unaware of what kind of thoughts occupy their minds, yet the awareness of their thought process will make all the difference.
You cannot focus on hope and despair at the same time. Energy flows where your attention goes.
I have always lived by “love it, leave it or change your perspective” and it has always worked for me. Of course, we cannot love the current situation and we cannot leave it but we can change our perspective.
- What’s the lesson to learn?
- What is the meaning you assign to everything that’s happening right now?
- How can you make a difference?
- How will you live life after Covid19?
Do you live life at cause (you make things happen) or at effect (life happens to you)?
Life is too short to be constantly in victim mode.
What’s worth paying attention to?
- learn to love your job (if you are in the wrong job or the environment is truly unbearable, leave it – don’t allow fear to hold you back) – now is the time to reflect and evaluate your situation
- make a difference in other people’s lives
- listen more
- be helpful and supportive
- give more positive reinforcement rather than criticism to others
- create opportunities for your personal growth – even if it means investing in yourself from your own pocket
- focus on personal excellence in everything you do
- be mindful of how your words affect others
- say “hello, please and thank you”
- care more today than you did yesterday
- be kind to the people around you
- smile more (also a great stress relief)
- learn people’s names and address them by name
- demonstrate respect to others
- give constructive feedback and ask for feedback
- become more aware of how you think and feel
This list can go on and on but you get my point.
Be optimistic and strive to become a better human being.
I am not sure who this will help more, you or the people around you.
Food for Thought:
Your life experience is a mirror. This means that things won’t improve before you learn the lesson of your own shortcomings.
