MONDAY BYTES — October 20, 2014
What did you learn last week—about yourself, others, or about the world—that’s going to help you do better this week?
It’s easy to focus on specific aspects of our performance, stage presence, or technique—or any logistical aspect of our work—and assume that these are the most important things to be paying attention to.
Of course, these ARE important.
But there is a whole other realm of self-improvement that we’re all too often tuning out.
I’m referring to who you are altogether as a person—how you are to work with and to be around. And it’s these interpersonal skills and traits that determine our quality of workplace interactions and our quality of life.
In such a reputation-based and relationship-oriented profession, who we are as individuals really matters.
Try this for a week: Before you go to sleep, review your day. Think over your interactions with people and your actions, big and small.
Is there anything you would choose to do differently? Don’t beat yourself up, just calmly think it through. Everything starts with the awareness of what you’d like to change, so you can develop the new habits to help you more consistently be your best self.
