Keeping Your Focus

I heard an HR professional make a powerful comment about some of the employees in her company. She said, "I wish more people would stop worrying about losing their job and actually focus on DOING their job. If they spent more time on the latter, they wouldn't have to worry as much about the former." Well said.

It is difficult to stay focused in these uncertain times, but spending time worrying about the worst case scenario does little to improve the situation. In fact, it may become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Multiply one person's lack of productivity by just half of the people within an organization, and sure enough-their worst fears may come true.
