Happy Monday #74

Hey there Survive at Workers and Happy Monday!
 
I hope you got to spend this weekend kicking back and doing the stuff you love.
 
It’s absolutely bucketing down with rain in Wales at the moment, so I’m grateful that I get to stay inside and work!  I ventured out earlier and ended up staying in the car for 15 minutes, waiting for the torrents to ease, lest I be swept away.
 
Dramatic?  Who, me?  😉
 

Happy Monday #74

 
So today I want to share with you a rather AWESOME video that my good friend Pedro sent to me first thing this morning along with this message…

Happy Monday #73

Hey there and a Happy Monday to you!

I don’t know about you, but I’m really chomping at the bit to get into this week.  I’ve got a few things planned, but more than that, there’s a lot of stuff I want to get accomplished… and I can’t wait to get stuck in.

It’s with that in mind that I chose today’s Happy Monday.

I figured wherever we are, we could all benefit from a good old video that motivates us as it gives us a kick up the old backside 😉

Let’s jump straight into it shall we?

After all, it’s Happy Monday 🙂

How To Survive A Challenging Day

As weeks go, last week was a rather rubbish one.  Which wouldn’t be so bad… except that every single day contained its fair dollop of rubbish.
 
But don’t think this post is going to be a pity party… because it’s not!
 
I’ve actually learned a few valuable things, which I want to share with you in this post.
 
So if you’re having a bad day, hang on in there.
 
Hopefully, you’re about to feel better!
 

How To Survive A Challenging Day

1. Learn The Lesson And Apply It

 
In most things that happen – whether it’s good, bad or ugly – there’s a lesson to be learned.
 
My business coach Alex always bangs on about this.  And he should know.
 
He saw his business go from a ridiculously high (I’m talking tens of thousands of dollars) profit to absolute zero in the space of just one week.  Yes, you heard me… one week!
 
Now, Alex could have started his own pity party.  He could have started thinking he was useless, would never succeed and was doomed to nothingness.
 
But he didn’t.
 
He reflected on the differences between the two weeks.  He reached out to his customers to find out what was going on.  He looked at his data.
 
He sought out the lesson he needed to learn.
 
He learned it and then applied it.
 
And what happened?  The business regained momentum, he matched his peak profit levels again… and then crushed them.
 
I won’t even tell you what Alex’s profit is today, simply because many of you wouldn’t believe me.  But let me put it this way… his company just made it into the Inc. 5000.
 
And that’s because every time he hits a wall, an obstacle, a barrier, a disappointment (whatever you want to call it), he learns the lesson and applies it.
 
Last week might have been complete poo for me, but on reflection I’ve learned several very useful lessons which will serve me well from this week onward.
 
If you’re having a crap day, what lessons are there for you?

Happy Monday from Survive at Work. Make a Difference

Happy Monday #71

Good morning… and a very Happy Monday to you!

It’s been a wet, grey and miserable one here in Wales.  The usual stuff of July/August!

It’s getting that bad that I’m actually considering buying Rocky one of these.

Happy Monday #71

Happy Monday!

This week I have some chuckle-some work-based cartoons to get you through the week.

Some are bad, others are groan-some, but one or two are just damn right hilarious:
