W.I.N. Wednesday: They both start with 'W'. You choose.
You can whine or you can do the work; they both start with W.
If you have time to whine then you have time to find solutions.
Dee Dee Artner
Whining is the easy route. It is basically a three-step process:
Step 1: Whine. You whine about all the problems of the world, you whine about all your problems, you whine about how hard done by you are and how life is unfair.
Step 2: Blame. Blame your parents, your teachers, your coaches, your coworkers, your boss, your spouse, your children, the economy, the government, the education system and anyone else you can think of. (The #1 Rule of Blame - Never blame yourself.)
Step 3: Repeat. Repeat steps 1 and 2.
Doing the work is hard. It takes effort. And, you have to be willing to do the work every day. That is hard. As Larry Winget says, “They call it work for a reason.”
Doing the work requires you to ask important questions such as:
· What’s Important Now?
· What’s the right thing to do?
· What piece of this do I own?
· What’s the smallest change that can make the biggest difference?
· What’s the first step?
· What’s the next step?
· How will my taking action help to benefit and serve others?
What’s Important Now? Whether you whine or do the working is a choice you have to make every day. Remember W.I.N. and choose wisely.
