It’s important to celebrate milestones. I recently aired my 50th episode of Let’s Fix Work.
It’s hard to believe almost a year has passed since I launched this little podcast. Over the past eleven months, I’ve met some inspiring thinkers and tackled topics from asshole bosses to sexual harassment to universal basic income.⠀
One thing I know more than ever: We fix work by deprioritizing corporate interests and focusing on our whole lives. If we do the inner work needed to be healthy adults with good relationships, our efforts carry over to our jobs.⠀
Let’s face it, even when we love our jobs and we feel secure, we are still a little worried about our future. That’s being human.
But what is the difference between being a successful human versus being a complacent human? Well, I’ll tell ya.
Successful humans don’t just sit back and complain about work. Even when life is tough and challenging, they dream, they think, they do, and they kick butt too. Of course, even successful people are prone to failure. But when they do fail, it’s not that big of a deal because they are resilient. They are successful at work and life.
What’s their secret? It’s neither dumb luck nor is it their connections. Those that find success do so because of their healthy mindsets and winning rituals.
A mindset is an attitude and a belief.
Rituals are what you do to set yourself up for success when nobody’s looking.
The good news is that even in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world, you can always improve your outcome and move towards success by adopting a healthy mindset and winning rituals. Doing so will carry over to your personal and professional lives. I promise.
In the milestone episode of Let’s Fix Work, I shared three mindset tips I’ve learned from friends, colleagues, and guests. My tips will help you reflect where you spend your time, rethink who gets your attention, and encourage you to be of service to those around you. Click here to give it a listen.
