Yeah yeah yeah, we’ve all heard this one before and sometimes management speak just annoys everyone, but today has produced a few great examples of why taking this approach actually saves time.
After yesterday’s late night finish the resulting reflection on events has enlightened me to this very simple, but effect, approach once again. It is very difficult to do at times, especially when you’re right in the think of it, but all these age old sayings of “you can’t see the wood for the trees” etc have got some pretty solid foundations. I find that I have to use a trigger word to step out of the situation, others click their fingers, pinch their leg or bite their bottom lip but whichever method you use it is always good to have an autopilot for using it when the alarm bells start ringing.
Recognise – CHANGE
If you want to learn how to do this properly I’ve already mentioned the book before.. Dr Steve Peters Chimp Paradox.
