“I still kick myself for this…”
Ever felt that way? We all have. That is called hindsight. When we look back it’s easy to see what we should have done.
How do we take a “bad feeling” into pro-active mode?
“It’s so hard to put your finger on that bad feeling.” Yes.
“Talk about it, get it out in the open…maybe you’re not the only one.” Action.
Be able to say this: “Here’s my worst case scenario for the day and it’s sure going that way right now, maybe it’s time to talk about it.” Bam.
Thank you for the wisdom Dan.
