What is a Positive Diversion ???
Something you do … When you have reached the point of frustration … when you “just can’t take it anymore” … When everything you touch falls apart … When you ask yourself what in the world you are doing here … Something that is a diversion from what you are doing but will also help you reach your goals … a change of pace …
1. Send an email you have been meaning to send.
2. Listen to your favorite song.
3. Go to lunch.
4. Power 15 minute nap.
5. Take a 20 minute ride.
6. Walk around the mall.
7. Do some exercise.
8. Pick up the laundry.
Anything that will allow you for a short period of time to forget about the frustrations … do something different … restart your engine … recharge your battery ... while at the same time doing something to help you reach your objectives.
A Positive Diversion during the rough times will help to maintain a Positive Attitude.
Remember though --- DON’T MAKE YOUR POSITIVE DIVERSION A NEGATIVE INFLUENCE ON SOMEONE ELSE --- JUST BSing with another person who is trying to work may be a positive diversion for you but a negative impact on someone else.
A great attitude will compensate for a lot of errors and frustrations
