Perception Shift

It’s the small changes that often make the biggest difference.   Occasionally we need an overhaul but most of the time just a tweak brings significant impact.

Here’s a simple but powerful tweak I learned from my son, Reagan, this week:  Assume every person you receive an email from is for you and has your best interest at heart.   Why not presume any criticism is from someone who wants you and your project to succeed?  Save yourself the energy of wondering about motive and intent and choose to believe the best.  Practicing this simple tweak avoids creative paralysis, wasted time and unnecessary conflicts that can potentially accompany a misread email or a misunderstood comment.

Small tweak.   Big difference.  Join me in trying it.
