Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habit.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
– Lao Tzu
As a busy manager, it’s easy to overlook the important role you play in creating your own workplace culture. The mindset you bring to your job can impact the destiny of the whole organization.
I know…it sounds a bit airy-fairy. But I believe it to be true, my friends.

It’s not airy-fairy though. It can seem that way and yes, there are certainly woo-woo ideas out there, but habits matter. Read William James, or Charles Duhigg’s book on habits…for individuals and organizations!
Thanks for the recommendations!
