I don’t know about you, but I’m thrilled that this week marks the official start of Spring. Spring signifies new birth and new beginnings, and for many of us in business, it also means taking on new projects or launching those we’ve been working on during the winter. I know here at Lee Milteer, Inc., we’re working on a plethora of new projects. Stay tuned for more info, and enjoy this week’s tips.
One of the easiest things to do in life is to judge and criticize ourselves and those around us. Let 2015 be the year we put that habit to rest.
I know I’ve caught myself making unfair judgments or criticizing others. We do it unconsciously to soothe our own egos and justify our thoughts, actions, and opinions. The problem with these unconscious behaviors is that they rob us of precious life energy that could be better used in productive and beneficial ways–and they make us (and the other person) feel bad. How about starting a new habit today? Make it a point to be aware of when you’re judging and criticizing yourself or others. When you catch yourself, do a pattern interrupt. Say “Stop, that’s not like me to judge and criticize. Next time I’ll be more understanding and compassionate.” Make it a point to start stating your criticisms in requests. Have some empathy for others who see life differently and notice how your life changes.
