Get Engaged In Your Work and Life for Resilience

Big Resilience Is Being Engaged In Work and Life

Don’t panic. Thanksgiving is just 10 days away! In addition to the holidays approaching we want to be sure you are aware we will not be publishing a Monday Motivators on November 24. Can I also use this moment to thank you so much for being a Monday Motivator follower? I hope that I have inspired you each week this year through my weekly e-note. I hope that I have met your expectations and have provided worthwhile information to help you navigate your work life as well as personal life. While I may never have met you, I am thankful you have been a part of my BIG life.

When Can We Be Resilient?

So, let’s move on with our last concept under BIG Resilience. While I was researching this topic both for MMs and our 2015 Annual Conference for Administrative Excellence, I found this definition: operating on all cylinders (as much as possible, not just a crisis). In that respect, every day we can be resilient.

When we operate on all cylinders we are less apt to make mistakes. We are more focused; think more clearly; access our creativity; are agile; positively react to the changes that occur and are better problem solvers.

How Engagement Equals Resilience

The question is what do we need to be able to operate on all cylinders? Here are some things I know help me.

  1. Embrace a positive attitude.
  2. Eat foods and drink beverages that provide energy and not just a “spike” in energy.
  3. Get 7 – 8 hours of sleep.
  4. Believe in yourself.
  5. Believe in the work you do.
  6. Free your mind as of much personal clutter as you can during your work day.
  7. Find something at work that excites you or gets your creative juices flowing.

You also have to explore what helps you operate at full throttle. These are usually based on our values, personal situations, work styles, natural talents and more.

With sincere thanks,

Joan Burge

P.S. Enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving and we’ll see you in December!
