No Regrets

My commute home yesterday took 4 1/2 hours.  That is all I have to say about that.

Today's Get It Done Tip is about getting what you want out of life.  I was texting with someone yesterday who told me she was put into a new role at work.  She mentioned she was happy to have a snow day because she isn't happy in her new job...but has a problem standing up for herself and telling her company how she feels.

This is such a common problem if you ask me and I struggle with it too on occasion.  We either suck it up to keep the peace or because we feel it is perceived as the right thing to do.  Or we have self doubt and hope somehow magically we'll get what we're hoping for out of life by wishing for it. 

When we are in a situation like this - whether professionally or personally - we have to remember that people around us aren't mind readers.  So say what's on your mind - no matter how difficult it may be - you won't know the outcome unless you try and your happiness is worth the effort.

No regrets is my motto!
The training I am attending next month should provide strategies to help address this in the workplace which I will share, but in the mean time I felt like musing about this topic. :) 

Happy vday all!
