Employee satisfaction is closely tied to performance. When satisfaction levels rise, productivity, customer service, and profits tend to rise too. Employee turnover slows down and it becomes easier to recruit new talent. See how your team, leadership, and shareholders can benefit from a company culture that emphasizes employee satisfaction.
HOW TO FUEL (OR KILL) ANYTHING
This morning as I came out to my office to work, I walked over to my desk I saw my beloved plant, a Venus flytrap.
I found it a while back and bought it because it was a symbol of patience, and I like to fill my office with symbols (see Gravity’s lesson on influence – control your environment).
But I hadn’t watered the plant or fed it for… well… quite some time.
I suddenly felt a sense of urgency, and rushed out to get it some water. As if somehow the next 10 seconds were crucial. (Classic example of the “all of a sudden syndrome”). As if suddenly, now aware of the situation, pouring my attention on it would somehow compensate for all my neglect.
As I sat there looking at the sad state of my symbol of patience, trying not to think of the irony of it all, my mind grasped hold of a positive lesson I could learn from this loss.
If you want to kill something, stop feeding it.
Yeah, I know it sounds simple. But when was the last time you fed your spiritual being? When was the last time you fed your dream? When was the last time you quenched your thirst for discovery? When was the last time you fed your creativity? When was the last time you fed the relationship with your significant other? Or your children? Or your parents?
All those things you care so much about… if you don’t feed them, they die. Don’t let that happen.
