Are you among those who say people are poor because they work less?
As usual, this morning I've been working on a workbook for helping the coachee during and after the session. [I'm a Certified Holistic Life Coach.] I was drawing a business structure to help the small business owner find out the profit-leadership-performance-life alignment, how common workplace problems occur, and what can be done.
The end image resembles a playground with a full one team, from the attackers to the goal keeper. I discovered that the customer is the team's goalkeeper, with the business owner as the first defender. Then I suddenly imagined what would happen if the defender kept shooting into their own goal. Would those be accepted as goals?
Own goals they are called. The goals no one thanks you for--not even the opponent team you scored for!
Of course, not many business owners are ware of the fact that they are scoring own goals. What matters is that they are always busy playing and often putting the ball into the goal zone. But whose goal?
Don't wonder why the losers are more stressed, tired, and unhappy.
And at the end of the day they turn to god or wizards for protection and prosperity!
I don't deny that many people are lazy. But the real difference lies in the quality of work; not quantity of hours. The successful work smarter instead.
