People, Places, Feelings, Actions, Situations – We deal with a lot every day…
We truly do.
We go through a lot, we have a lot on our plates, and we somehow have to manage these things.
A management tool that I like to use is positional awareness.
To be aware of where I am in a moment is important.
Not only of where I am, but where (and who) the others are in this moment.
Being aware of the physical place I am standing in, the emotions filling the air in this space, and the actions being performed in this situation.
We want to put ourselves in the best position to succeed.
- Physically – We want to be in the right place at the right time. Whether it’s at work, amidst a conversation, or simply at the end of the day making our way into bed at a responsible hour, we want and need to be there.
- Emotionally – We want that balance of feeling life as we live it while not letting that area of our brain throw us for loops that we can’t handle.
- Socially – Another balanced place would be great. Dealing with people that we want to deal with while also allowing for that time of peace on our own.
- Mentally – Placing our short-term focus on the moment’s steps while having a long-term focus on the moment’s goal.
Ideally, we get to do this with ourselves AND with others.
People will sometimes get in the way. It happens.
What we need to do is also get our “Go-To Team” into position, too.
This “Go-To Team” are the rocks in your life. Those people who will pull for you and be there for you through all.
The ones you trust when you need answers and guidance.
When you can put yourself in the positions that you know are right for you, while also having your “Go-To Team’ in position when you need them, you truly can accomplish so much in a day (and beyond).
But staying in position isn’t always easy.
It’s not always available for us to be in stance to be ready to handle what life throws at us.
People, places, feelings, situations – they all get thrown at us.
It’s all about powering through.
I hope no matter what positions you get put in today, you can maintain that focus and work with yourself and your “Go-To Team” on conquering the day.
So, let’s get into position.
Here comes the day.
“I believe a few words can change your day and your life.”
