Micro-Goal #2 to a GREAT Workplace: Hear the words “Thank You.”

Definitions:

B-HAG = Big Hairy Audacious Goal.

S-HAG = Small HIGHLY Achievable Goal (also referred to as a Micro-Goal)

*****

Your B-HAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) is to create a great workplace with engaged employees and world class productivity.

As I have indicated previously, these things don’t happen just because you want them to happen. That B-HAG will only occur (if at all) through the implementation of S-HAGs (Small Highly Achievable Goals.)

The idea behind S-HAGs or Micro-Goals is that deliberate daily implementation of them will change your work environment and your relationship with colleagues. These goals appear almost simplistic. The irony is that very few of us regularly implement and achieve them.

Let’s have a look at Micro-Goal #2 to a GREAT workplace. 

HEAR the words “Thank You” every day from your work colleagues

 

This Micro-Goal is to HEAR the words “Thank You” each day. “Huh?” I hear you say!

My challenge to you is to go into work tomorrow with the deliberate intention to HEAR “Thank You.”

Quite likely, a few times today, someone said “Thank You” to you, but it probably went over your head and you paid little heed to it.

However, if you set yourself a Micro-Goal to HEAR “Thank You,” what will happen?

  1. You will have to do something to generate “Thank You.”

  2. In generating “Thank You,” you are obviously helping a work colleague in at least some slight way.

  3. When you HEAR “Thank You,” you are going to feel slightly better about yourself because you have achieved a goal.

  4. Now, that you feel good because of satisfying a Small Highly Achievable Goal, you are quite likely to be motivated to deliberately do something else to again HEAR “Thank You.”

  5.  All those work colleagues that you helped are going to appreciate you more.

  6. You are creating a better work environment and likely a more engaged workforce.

Micro Goal #1 to a GREAT Workplace: Complement Your Work Colleagues

Definitions:

B-HAG = Big Hairy Audacious Goal.

S-HAG = Small HIGHLY Achievable Goal (also referred to as a Micro-Goal)

*****

Your B-HAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) is to create a great workplace with engaged employees and world class productivity.

Unfortunately, these things don’t happen just because you want them to happen. That B-HAG has a significantly better chance of happening through the deliberate implementation of S-HAGs (Small Highly Achievable Goals.)

Goal Achievement makes me and you feel good. So, why not find ways to feel good and upbeat. In other words, why not set yourself some Small Highly Achievable Goals, that you know you can achieve.

Small Highly Achievable Goals that when you achieve them, you feel better and you have probably made a difference to your work colleagues as well. Over coming days, I will identify some of these S-HAGs or Micro-Goals that can make a difference to your workplace.

How Mark Twain Used Today’s Evocative Word – DIMLY – to get ’em evocating!

humorous inspirational chicago speaker on mark twain

Original illustration by Mark Anderson for Conor’s book “What Mark Twain Learned Me ’bout Public Speakin”

SOURCE:  Letter excerpt sent by Mark Twain, January 1906 ( Twain was commenting on a speech where he bombed. For more detail see What Mark Twain Learned Me ’bout Public Speakin’)

“I vaguely remember some of the details of that gathering—     DIMLY    I can see a hundred people—no, perhaps fifty—shadowy figures sitting at tables feeding, ghosts now to me, and nameless forever more. I don’t know who they were, but I can very distinctly see, seated at the grand table and facing the rest of us, Mr. Emerson, supernaturally grave, unsmiling; Mr. Whittier, grave, lovely, his beautiful spirit shining out of his face; Mr. Longfellow, with his silken white hair and his benignant face; Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, flashing smiles and affection and all good-fellowship everywhere like a rose-diamond whose facets are being turned toward the light first one way and then another—a charming man, and always fascinating, whether he was talking or whether he was sitting still (what he would call still, but what would be more or less motion to other people). I can see those figures with entire distinctness across this abyss of time…………..

Now at that point ends all that was pleasurable about that notable celebration of Mr. Whittier’s seventieth birthday—because I got up at that point and followed (the previous speaker), with what I have no doubt I supposed would be the gem of the evening.
