PM: “GOOD MORNING! How is everybody today?”
That’s how our daily stand-ups start more often than not.
Most days do not start out as “awesome” for me. They start out like they do for you, dragging my increasing old butt out of bed to spend another day bending computers to do my bidding.
I found out years ago though that my outlook on the day improved exponentially if I started the day off in a great mood, even if I’m faking it.
So these days when anyone asks “How’s it going?” I answer with a variation of “AWESOME!”.
It’s not for them. It’s not so that they feel bad because they are still only 1 cup of coffee in today and it looks like I’m on my 4th.
It’s for me. My days are better when I decide it is going to be a good day instead of letting others decide for me.
Decide that today is going to be a good day. You will probably be surprised when it is. :)
Until next time,
I <3 |<
