|Puppy doing relaxation right|
I’ve noticed we’re so accustomed to the opulent offerings of our era that conversations can often center around trivial disappointments. There was a dust bunny swirling at the edge of a vast immaculate lobby. The water fountain didn’t dance for us, it merely gushed water. And even then, not cleverly. How 20th century.
In business and at home I’ve been on a mission for years — to catch people doing things right.
With our team it’s all about celebrating their strengths far more often than working on a weakness.
I LOVE catching our son doing things right. Treating a friend well. Making others laugh. Saying thank you to a parent who had him over for a play date. Stirring up excitement (his specialty).
It’s the same with Ann. She does so many many things exceptionally well, who am I to quibble over an area that may not have her attention or interest.
Once you’re on the lookout for what people do well don’t be surprised to find a spillover effect. The more you notice — and articulate — what is exemplary, the more you’ll get.
It’s true for dogs and boys and co-workers and friends and family. It may even be true for grumps.
