LQ New Year, New Attitude

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

"There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.  —  C. S. Lewis

After the year we’ve had with COVID I believe the quote above is so true. It has been difficult for so many and on so many levels.

But the new year is upon us. New year… new goals…new opportunities…

Many people are already setting new goals to join a gym, lose weight, change careers, go back to school, etc.

But wouldn’t you agree that it’s hard to start anything new or accomplish any goal without having the right attitude first.

You need to be positive, optimistic, confident, and strong willed. This type of attitude provides you with the kind of mental energy that’s required to not just start a project or goal but to actually finish and accomplish it.

If you change your attitude and make it your mission to eliminate the negative, pessimistic thoughts you have allowed to fester in your mind, you will have the best year of your life.

I can’t… into I can

There’s no time…into I’m making time

It’s too hard…into it’s going to take work

I always fail…into I’m going to succeed

I’m not disciplined…into I have control over my actions

It’s just what happens to me…into it’s what I choose to create

I don’t know what do do…into I’m going to figure it out

I just don’t feel motivated…into I’m going to be motivational

I want more confidence…into I will be confident

During difficult times, it is even more critical to choose your outlook, instead of letting it choose you. Step up and start the New Year out with a bang. I know that it will have a dramatic impact and produce results.

  1. Yes, indeed! I always think about Hans Rosling and the Gapminder Institute who show with figures that the world is always getting better, despite what you might believe.
