Like Best, Next Time – The Quote Of The Day Show

The Quote Of The Day Show podcast offers daily excerpts from motivational speakers.  I recently listened to episode 453 which features a 12 minute listen from Pamela Jett.  She describes her Like Best, Next Time approach to assessing situations in the workplace.  I believe that this approach would be very useful as a guide to reflect upon my day.  What did I like best?  What will I do differently tomorrow?  The practice of speaking positively to myself when I miss the mark helps me stay optimistic and engaged.  Speaking to myself positively when I get thing right helps me get things “mo’ righter” tomorrow; keeps me moving forward.  Level up!

Truly fascinating.
