Choose your attitude

"There's always a choice about the way you do your work, even if there's not a choice about the work itself".

The more you think of this, the more it makes you realize how much control we have over the things that we are used to lament about. We are too used to complaining about our jobs, about how boring or over worked we are! But does all the complaining solve the problem or does it makes things worse?

I think it makes things worse because all the negative vibes are going to leave us with a negative attitude, making us hate what we do more! Actually it makes us react to the situation rather than being proactive and taking control over the situation.

If we choose an attitude that is positive and productive, then I am not saying the external conditions will change overnight, but at least we will enjoy what we do a little bit more. If we enjoy what we do and start taking a little more interest in it then the quality of our work will improve and gradually this will have a cascading effect and lead to a change in the external environment as well.

So, remember. We do have a choice. We can either choose to be grumpy, lazy and irritated or we can be lively, happy and enjoying what we do! We may not have a choice about what we do, but we certainly have a choice about how we do it.

The choice is ours, lets make the right one!
