Frame Bigger or Smaller?

Tags : 

Decisions we make are based on our frame. How our community works, based on our frame. Our World, political, and religious views, based on our frame. Should you frame bigger?

When you shun the input of others you are limiting your data. When your community doesn’t reach beyond the river, highway, or state line, you’re limiting your exposure. If you decide to watch only one news channel you are limiting your perspective.

Push Data

The internet is a great service. As a component infrastructure, it matters.

Use a browser to research a product or service. You’ll be reminded of it again and again. Look up something you’re interested to purchase from eBay, you will see a lot more of it in the margins.

This isn’t a coincidence.

What we believe is largely based on our experiences. It is what exists within our frame.

Bigger Frame

Your position on global warming, based on your frame. Your belief about the pyramids in Egypt, based on your frame. Political views, should you choose to engage, based on your frame.

Many people feel like they are in a World of information overload. Perhaps it is true, yet differences in thinking are often viewed as a false narrative, not an opportunity for a different perspective.

In a World where there is more information at our fingertips than we can possibly digest, we must wonder about the validity and reliability of our data.

Should we question the size of our frame? Should we allow more ideas to enter then filter, instead of filter and then allow entry?

Your frame will not only condition what you believe, it will also determine everything that happens next.

At Work, Affirmations Lead The Way

Tags : 

Are you committed to being more positive at work? How you approach your job each day may have something to do with what you constantly tell yourself. Are you using affirmations? Are they positive or negative?

Most rational people don’t go to the gym one time, pick up some weights, move them around, come home and look in the mirror only to be disappointed that they haven’t transformed.

The same could be said about one day of eating correctly, one day of taking the stairs, or just one day of professional study.

One day of any of those activities won’t create a big change. Do you agree?

What Are You Saying?

Our outlook, what we say to ourselves repetitively across time will shape our outcomes.

“This meeting is going to be long and boring.”

“This job is terrible. I hate my job.”

“My boss hates me and is never satisfied with my work.”

These affirmations, delivered to ourselves repetitively across time will almost guarantee that you will bring them to life. Yet, positivity seekers will insist that they are trying to be positive.

Saying to yourself, “I am trying to be positive.” will often end with, “but, I can’t be positive because…”.

Skip the “trying to be” and the “but,” and put your fate in motion.

Positive Affirmations

There is certainly the possibility that your next meeting may go into overtime. You may also not be in your dream job or your boss may find issues with your work. However, if you really want to make a difference, you’re going to have to affirm it.

At the end of the day discover what went well. Create a win list. Celebrate small victories. Find a reason why the meeting is valuable. Convince yourself you’ll get it right for the boss.

Use only positive affirmations. Tell yourself about it. Be deliberately repetitive.
