Let’s Be Thankful All Year Long


Robby

On one particular Thursday in November, people all across the country gather to give thanks. Here at IndyAtWork, we’re thankful for the chance to share a few thoughts about workplace opportunities and ideas for Central Indiana, as well as our resources for those looking to improve their careers.

Thankfulness is on everyone’s mind this time of year. But what would it be like if we were thankful all year long?

I think if we focused on being thankful all of the time, a lot would happen.

We’d appreciate each other more, and fight less. Being thankful is saying that no matter what happens, we’re happy to be here. If we were thankful year round, we would see less conflict in the workplace.

We’d be more creative and more inclusive. It’s all too easy to shoot down a new idea, and all too easy to feel like you’ll be rejected for speaking. But if we were more thankful for others, we’d acknowledge what they have to say and consider it more carefully.

We’d be more gracious about mistakes. Let’s face it, failures happen. But if we were more thankful for the chance to do anything, we’d be less concerned about what went wrong beyond fixing it and more likely to own up for our own screwups

We’d would take fewer unnecessary risks. There’s nothing wrong with a calculated decision to try something that might not work out. But if we’re using a thankful mindset, we’ll understand and appreciate the chance to be part of a larger process. We won’t put ourselves farther out than we can handle, instead focusing on how lucky we are to be able to do what we do.

So let’s be thankful—year round. And in the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving!
