Things To Think About, Monday, July 16th

Happy Monday, or whatever Monday you choose.

This week you may want to think about the people with which you associate. Is there discord within your team? Who is refusing to cooperate? Is it you? Someone else? Do the group values reflect your own? Perhaps you are having your own internal struggles around your project. If the issue is that you do not have the right people around you, consider expanding your network.

But, and there is always a but - are you holding on too tightly? Are you stubbornly trying to make things work despite the reality of the situation? Perhaps you feel the need to stick with the devil you do know. Holding on too tightly can prevent you from being open to receive new things. Consider exploring these feelings.

Perhaps you are trying to spare someone else's feelings in these group dynamics. Sometimes you need to rip off the band-aid in order to clean out the wound. What is festering beneath the patches? Until you get to the heart of the matter you blind yourself to root cause. You can rationalize and rationalize until you fool yourself into denial.

What's next? The lies we tell ourselves also catch up to us. Are you ready for this next rite of passage? Will you be able to transition to the next level or stay stuck in denial? The only thing constant is change. Are you willing to change and grow? Are you willing to be honest with yourself? Those big ideas can be reality, not just seemingly impossible dreams.
