Quit your bitching and youll be more productive.

by BlossMart 30 replies
I re-learnt this valuable lesson in the past week or so. I was having a bit of a slump and a few people on here pulled me up (you know who you are) and I really appreciate the kick in the butt.

I was basically Oscar the Grouch in human form and I think it was starting to affect business slightly.

Clearing my negativity has made me far more productive and allows me to focus on the job at hand and not on the things that dont affect the project such as personality clashes and unrealistic demands.

Im stepping back a little and rebooting myself to a degree.

Im going to focus on time management.

Ensure I take the breaks I need to keep focused and not cranky.

I am going to set realistic micro goals - not great lofty ones that will make me stressed when I dont achieve them.

I am going to ensure I have digital task lists set up.

I will spend 80% of my work time doing billed worked.

I will trust people enough to delegate.

Hopefully I will be a fresher and less cranky person soon.

Ill keep you posted.

Anyone else doing the same? We could start a movement.

    Complaining and bitching are both habits which are ultimately not helpful, amen.

      Agreed - so much more to do than bitching - it takes up a lot of energy.

    I love a bitch like the next person but it doesn't do me any favours when I am working - it sucks the life out of things and using that sort of energy is wasted and I can do better.

    I'd say quitting your bitching is the right move - good luck with it.

      It's not going to be easy, don't get me wrong. I just need to channel my negativity and focus on positivity as the negative stuff and bitchiness takes up time and if a client annoys me or rubs me the wrong way I just need to be professional and get on with it.

      It's really easy to take things personally, but it's all business and I'm here to get results for my clients not to win friends and manage the way they engage with me.

      Hahaha, I agree. Life's all about "quitting your bitching" and getting down to business. On the other hand, so it's so human to bitch about everything that we'd like to have but we don't...

    Great thread, indeed. Straight to the point. Maybe, the toughest part is admitting yourself you are in the bitching zone, lol. Sometimes, you are yourself worst enemy. So, fixing it is the first positive thing you can do. Now, it would be great if you could work on your movement a little bit more, lol. Like some kind of anti-bitching therapy, lol. Thx. Cheers!

    Check out this free audio on "Eat that Frog" https://soundcloud.com/user-801098522. It has useful tips on time management. We can't really do it all.

    Way the go,
    keep on going,
    Keep on pushing yourself
    to the limit and more.

    It's challenging, but when
    you are focused on what you
    want to achieve an act you can get far.

    complaining and bitching can point out a problem that needs to be taken care of ..

    thats the key..if you complain .. get in the habit of looking for a solution once you make the complaint ..and really if you can't do anything about it.. stop complaining about it ..

      Good point.

      Some people just like drama - we all probably know people like that. They go from one issue to the next and always have a dramatic story to go with their news.

      Honestly, I think it's healthy to have a vent especially to a family member or colleague now and again but regularly doing this will just eat you up and you'll start spending way too much time focusing on the negative and not the positives.

      I think your idea of having solutions is a good one. It's the way forward and allows you to stop focusing on negative so much and more on the positives.
