The weight of expectations at work will crush you if you let it.
At the end of the day one thing will help you avoid that from happening.
If you are struggling with this challenge at work, here is how you relieve the pressure.
Shift your focus…
from what other people expect of you,
to honoring the relationship they have with you.
You'll be amazed that you aren't just "doing work" anymore. It's not a task to be completed, or a transaction to be processed. You aren't just trying to make your boss happy, the bottom line better, or a problem go away.
You are bringing joy...to a person.
You are showing honor…to a person.
You are developing a relationship…WITH a person.
That's going to change your work experience.
Will it make things perfect? No. But this one small shift in focus and perspective will allow you to get up everyday and approach what you do differently.
Now you can say "I get to go to work today",
rather than "I have to go to work today".
It will change expectations from frustrating you,
into opportunities that excite you.
That's the thing about relationships and honor.
When they go hand in hand,
there isn't much that will keep you all from where you want to go.
And just in case you are all like, "but how do I start?"
Go decorate someone's office already!
