This post is for my hairstylist friends, salon owners and anyone that, like me, strives to learn more about themselves everyday…..
So, my New Year’s Resolution for 2017 was to listen to 1 Ted Talk per day. This has been very fulfilling, not because I always agree with everything the speakers talk about, but they get you thinking either way. It seems that I keep hearing the same concept that “Leaders are Readers”. Well, I always hated to read. I am sure it had a lot to do with my inability to pay attention to one thing for a long period of time, but since I keep hearing the suggestion over and over, I decided to give it another try.
What I learned is, it is still hard for me to pay attention for a long period of time, but it is ok. I do not have to read the book in 2 days like my friends do, I can do it on my time. This realization led to another and another that, most things I don’t do are because I judge if I do it as well as another. So, my lesson for today is….. do it anyway. Even if your way doesn’t look or feel like everyone else, and while you are at it, don’t judge someone if their way of doing something is not exactly like yours, instead…..learn something from them.
