Being flexible with your expectations

Wednesday LIVE with Evie #30

Part 1

Part 2
(because Facebook wanted to see how flexible I could be with my expectations)

Have you ever been really tied to a certain way of doing something in your business?

Or maybe there was something that you were sooo sure was going to go a certain way and then it didn’t (and it frustrated you to no end)?

I know that I’ve been extremely tied to how I think I should be doing things or how I’ll reach a certain goal, or even what reaching that goal will look like.

And when things don’t quite work the way I’m expected, I get frustrated and sometimes try to power through!

But sometimes, (well, maybe a lot of times) it’s proved more helpful if I take a step back and look at my options. On occasion, there’s been a much easier path, if I just adjust slightly to see it (warning, this can be really hard to do by yourself 🙂 ).

So, this week we talked about being flexible with your expectations.

And if you want to catch next week’s Wednesday LIVE with Evie—head over to Facebook and like my page here (that way you’ll receive a notification when I go live).

What’s your focus? What’s wrong, what’s wright, or what’s not working?

Wednesday LIVE with Evie #29

When something unexpected happens in your business or life, what do you tend to notice?

Several years ago I read an article that said that the problem with today’s business culture is that we focus on what’s going wrong instead of what’s going right (ironic isn’t it!).

I was still working as an Implementation Specialist at the time (being project manager, help desk, and computer programmer). And I remember thinking how my clients would be pretty dang upset if I decided to focus only on what was working – especially because a large part of my job was about focusing on what WASN’T working.

So, we talked about the difference between focusing on what’s wrong, what’s right, and what’s not working.

What’s Not Working and New Approaches

Wednesday LIVE with Evie #27

Is there a something in your business that just isn’t working? You’ve tried and tried and it just isn’t working for you?

Or is there a task in your business that you HATE? Something that you just can’t stand and want to put off or ignore altogether?

I talk about what to do when something just isn’t working or when you have to do something you don’t like.
