Actions Speak Louder than Moods

by | Feb 22, 2024 | Blog | 0 comments

Regardless of my mood, the good and not-so-good days have something in common.


Some days, I’m full of boundless energy and optimism. I feel unstoppable and capable of changing the world.

Other times, I find it hard to get excited about anything and wonder if I’m making a difference at all.

Sound familiar?

In both circumstances, I focus on my behavior because whether I feel like it or not, I’ve still got to deliver.

Despite the images you see in your social feeds, no one is “on” all the time.

We’re emotional creatures, full of ups and downs.

Here’s my advice – acknowledge the struggle and keep moving. 

When you’re in a funk and don’t feel like going to a meeting or dealing with a difficult customer, embrace your humanity and get back to work.
