this post is in reflection to the post here: https://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20121015160025-554288–i-am-trying-my-best
the original post says the follows:
One evening I was having a “tiger dad” moment with my daughter as we worked together on a math problem. Suddenly she turned towards me and said in an exasperated voice, “Papa, I am trying my best.”
Embedded in those words is one of life’s most important axioms. Most people do not wake up in the morning and say, “Today, I am going to be the biggest screw up I can be.”
So, why do we encounter so many situations in everyday life where we get upset with others for not meeting our expectations?
Is it because they approach situations differently than we do?
Is it because we have trained ourselves to be problem solvers and hence our first instinct is to look for issues in any situation as opposed to what’s working?
Is it because we are liberal with criticism and stingy with praise?
Whatever the reason, it demoralizes the person on the receiving end of our “problem solving.”
Let’s try to find the goodness in others’ actions.
I posit that our teams will be inspired, energized, and ultimately more successful if we do this consistently and with authenticity.
It’s hard, but I guarantee that the outcome will be worth the effort!
Are you ready to try your best?
Without pressure there is no pleasure, this is a fundamental law.
One could deal with situations to apply pressure or pleasure.
when pressure triggered, it is important that we accept or surrender randomness, chaos and diversity, since they are majestic. Hence one should come to reflect, that people act or behave to the best of their abilities, and one should react to see what best can be done from our end.
