‘Tis this season of giving! It is not physical gifts that we will be pondering today, but gifts of understanding, of time, and of patience. We are starting the second week of the final month of 2021. A season of holidays and PTO. Children are off from school and families are making plans to see each other. For many this can mean additional stress. This leads us to our quote:
“No one can lead a happy life if they think only of themselves.” — Seneca
I want to challenge you to be a little more patient, understanding and helpful to your teammates in the next few weeks. I guarantee that not pushing more stress to your team will have massive benefits, even if this is a busy season for you. If you are stressed by the season I hope you can find support in your team, even if you can’t or don’t want to ask for it.
If you are having a hard time reply to this email! If you are comfortable talking about it let me know and I can listen or we can find a solution together.
