From Hair the musical you may recall the chorus: let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in.
How often do we focus on the squeaky wheel in the team instead? Spending most of our time fixing the issues created by them directly or inadvertently? Or focusing on the sales gaps instead of the opportunities to create even more value.
It makes us tired, we risk losing our momentum and passion by the mundane, repetitive focus on mistakes and correction.
What if we instead let the sunshine in? Focused on the strengths and the stars of the team? The new client opportunities? Going for the greatness leading into that chorus: life is around you and in you.
Don’t run away or hide from the issues. Deal with all issues with decisiveness and minimum time and effort spent. To allow time and focus for the sunshine. Somewhere, inside something, there is a rush of greatness. The reason you love doing what you do. Bring the focus to what matters most – and create a place of drive and sunshine.
Let’s be the hippie counterculture and create great results and great teams through letting the sunshine in.
