I had a wonderful exchange with one of my colleagues. He was exhausted. He was sharing his frustration - of how others don't do it as well as he does, how management don't care about doing it properly - just get it done and how a Sales team had sold a solution that could not be delivered. Yes he did have a bit to say!

This exchanged prompted me to ponder. My experience is quite different. So what do we have to let go to experience a far more flowing, harmonious workplace? 

A few activities come to mind, such as judgement, attachment and expectation. We need to let go of these and other activities to achieve a different experience. Right now I feel to touch on Judgement. 

Judgement is the activity of deciding something is good or bad, acceptable or unacceptable, right or wrong. However, when you judge someone else's behavior you are doing so from your perspective.

Your perspective, or your lens, has been developed over time. The country where you were born, your upbringing, your culture, where you went to school, the companies you've worked at and every experience you have had to this moment, all contributes to your view of the world.

It is unique. No one else has taken the exact same path as you.

You then use this lens to view the world and judge from your perspective. Is it any wonder so many things you experience do not fit with your perspective on how something should be done, or what you see as being good, acceptable or right?

Judgement is a futile activity.

That has been my experience. After investing many years becoming wound up in company decisions, management directions and behaviors of colleagues and customers, I chose differently. I accept that we have all walked our own path to be here, in this moment and we all make choices from our own perspective. So I spend less judging the choice, choosing instead to assess impact to my direction and making the necessary course adjustments. Then getting focused back on what I need to be doing. 

Try it for yourself. Become aware of where you invest time and energy judging others. Honestly ask if this is a good use of your energy. Then choose differently and see how your experience shifts.

Remember, releasing the need to judge saves time and energy. So if you are time poor, try on letting go of judgement. It may help you in more ways than one!

Authentically Towards Success

We live in a world where it is far too easy and far too acceptable to compromise values, principles and ethics in the race to success. Whether in the pursuit of personal or professional goals, or in leading organisations, authenticity provides the opportunity to heighten self-awareness, become clear on vision and objectives and enhance the self determination required to hold steady in the face of opposition.

Authentically Towards Success exists to challenge, support and encourage individuals, leaders, teams and organisations to instill authenticity as a fundamental tenant of success. How we achieve is just as important as what we achieve!
