Leadership
One way to approach your work: “I come in on time, even a little early. I do what the boss asks, a bit faster than she expects. I stay on time and on budget, and I’m hardworking and loyal.” The other way: “What aren’t they asking me to do that I can do, learn from, make an impact, and possibly fail (yet survive)? What’s not on my agenda that I can fight to put there? Who can I frighten, what can I learn, how can I go faster, what sort of legacy am I creating?” via Seth’s Blog Two different attitudes?  Which do you have yourself?  Which do you ask of your employees?  Do they match? I work with a lot of top notch church leaders.  I know none that operate under the first framework? In fact, I don’t know of any churches that are tearing it up that have staff that work under the first framework either? Are you workin’ hard, or hardly workin’? Do you love your job or loathe it?

Are you happy in your church job?  Well… a new study says that if you fake your happiness when you’re at work, it can actually make things much worse. According to Lifehacker.com, few people consider being 100 percent honest when asked how it’s going at work. But overcompensating on a bad day can not only make your secretly bad mood worse, it can hurt your task focus. Here’s the scoop… essentially, people who smile and act happy when they are having a bad day are actually more withdrawn from their work than people that are honest about their day.  And… it’s worse for women than for men, according to the study. According to the article, those who created smiles by thinking positive thoughts, or engaged in “deep acting,” seemed to actually cheer up, and their work output increased. So, I guess attitude has a lot to do with it. How do you act when you’re having a bad day?  Or when you hate your job?  Do you cop the fake smile, or actually think positive thoughts that help you stay engaged in the actual work you have to do. Seems like a fine line to me many times… but it could be important in how much work you really get done… even on a bad time or during a bad season. via Faking Happiness Can Make Your Bad Mood Worse.
