Something happened a few days ago that I feel compelled to share with you.
An employee that I had to fire a few weeks ago refused to return a company asset that I had paid for. Weeks have gone by, the asset was never shipped to me and when I asked her again for it, this time, she flatly refused to return it.
I admit, my initial reaction was shock and anger, followed quickly by hurt and “How could she do this?” But after about 20 minutes of emotional drama I cooled down. What helped was asking these questions:
Has what she’s done really damaged me in any way? Can the item easily be replaced? Is spending time being upset, hurt and angry more important than investing my time in working on my business, where I get the joy of serving others?
By shifting my perspective I was able to refocus my thoughts, breathe out negative feelings, and move on with my day. While I can’t agree with her actions I CAN choose not to invest any more energy into the situation. I HIGHLY suggest you do the same this week — let something go and move on to what it is you are REALLY supposed to focus on.
