Last week I was at the Annual ALA conference and had a great time meeting with people. At the conference I gave out gratitude journals because gratitude helps people be happier, healthier and smarter.
Another great side effect of gratitude is that it helps you gain respect at a faster rate. The key to moving forward on the Pathway to Success is having respect for yourself and for your team.
So you may be asking why respect matters. The reason why respect matters is that we need to work together to get to our goals.
Have you ever been in a situation where you work with someone you don’t trust or respect?
It’s hard to achieve your goals if you don’t respect the people around you to do the job that needs to be done. We end up micromanaging them to ensure that the job is done right. This makes it harder to achieve our goals and wastes precious time.
