Leaders often have to do things they don’t like to do. We think we shouldn’t have to deal with things we don’t want to deal with and that what we have to deal with is outside our jobs. Here’s how changing your thinking can change what you’re feeling.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- How to look at those things that you don’t want to do and re-label them.
- The importance of looking at those things you don’t want to do as part of your job.
- How to consciously decide that what you are going to do today is a decision versus a “have-to.”
