Seek Out the “Cracks” in Your Work Life
Updated: Jan 25, 2021
Seek out the (perhaps seemingly) “little things” that beg your attention — the small cracks that might develop into major breaks if you don’t take action, change something or stop doing something.
Those cracks might include:
Colleague or business partner relationship issues
Less than stellar client service situations
Clients or customers who haven’t heard from you in a while
Lack of attention to learning new things or improving a stale skill-set
Lack of attention to health and fitness
Lack of attention to the important people in your life
Corners you may be cutting
Unproductive habits that might be creeping into your workday
Do something … take action to deal with one or more of these cracks:
What will you commit to doing in the next 3 hours?
What new thing can you begin practicing over the next 3 days?
What new habit can you develop over the next 3 weeks?
What new NEW RESULTS will you achieve over the next 3 months IF you take such action?
Be honest with yourself. Face the facts. Ignoring the cracks will NOT make them go away … they’ll only tend to grow larger.
Repair the cracks in your work life and personal life and develop new habits to keep those cracks from forming in the future.
What work-life crack will you take action on mending today?
