“We all come into this world the same; naked, scared and ignorant. After that grand entrance, the life that we end up with is simply an accumulation of all the choices we make.” While rarely obvious at the time, our choices and their ramifications can act as our best friend, or our worst enemy. Our daily decisions maneuver us towards our goals or can easily derail our lives. The results of our daily routines, our daily choices, and the cumulative effects of this define our lives professionally and personally.
“Think about it. Everything in your life exist because you first made a choice about something. Choices are at the root of every one of your results. Each choice starts a behavior that over time becomes a habit.” While you may or may not cognitively contemplate the choice and ramifications, it is our choices that determine and impact our trajectory through life.
“Each choice starts a behavior that over time becomes a habit. Choose poorly and you might find yourself back at the drawing board, forced to make new, and often more difficult choices. Don’t choose at all, and you’ve made the choice to be a passive receiver of whatever comes your way.” Our decisions impact not only us personally, but our coworkers, our organization, and the surrounding community. The core trait, however, is the root remains our choices!
Our teams determined that the organizational values were:
- All under the umbrella of Safety
I would ask us all to reflect upon our daily choices. Ask your if your choices have positive or negative impacts upon us, our team, our organization, and our community. Have our choices been made in the best interest of our values? If not, how can we improve this impact to better provide a more successfully daily agenda for us all?
