If you want to get results faster, you should work harder on yourself than on the people around you, because you can control what you do, much more than what you can someone else to do.
If you have a poor performing staff member you can continue to complain and blame the staff member or you can learn how to manage a poor performer out of your team and than remove the staff member and find someone better.
Jim Rohn said:
“Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for fewer problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom.”
You cannot change the circumstances.
But you can get stronger, wiser, better.
Life is about constant, predictable patterns of change, and the only constant factor will be our feelings and attitudes toward life.
We as human beings have the power of attitude and that attitude determines choice, and choice determines results.
All that we are and all that we can become has indeed been left to us to decide and interpret through our attitude and choices.
Life is like the changing seasons—you cannot change the seasons, but you can change yourself.
Take responsibility for your results and don’t blame others.
For example you can blame a poor performing staff member or you can take responsibility for hiring the wrong person.
Work harder on yourself for better results.
Since your team constitutes your COGS in your P&L and their daily feelings determines how productive they are for you; managing their feelings and motivation and skills therefore becomes absolutely critical to managing your highest single cost.
Understanding the above is therefore absolutely imperative to your ability to manage them.
Hope that helps.
