Is Complaining Really Working for You?

Many things get us irked at work: an unappreciative boss, a dumb mistake by an associate, or a very difficult customer, to name a few.  Our frustration and disappointment levels can peak, and we often resort to complaining about the problem instead of doing something about it.  We waste enormous amounts of time moaning about things – often the amount of time it would take to remedy the problem.

So instead of complaining about things that go wrong, try turning the complaint into a constructive action that allows you to take responsibility for things that are well within your ability to address.  Complaining is a weak person’s way of letting off steam and pointing a finger at someone else.  So stop complaining and start doing.  You’ll find a renewed sense of confidence and some amazing results when you do.


 Here are a few Business & Life Tips to think about….

Business Tips:

  • People leave companies because of untrustworthy leadership, poor management, or a lack of appreciation for work well done.
  • If you want to lead people, bring them together under a common cause, develop a plan to achieve it, and execute on your plan.
  • It’s not that money doesn’t matter, but what drives top performers is internal. It’s about the feeling they get from achieving success.

Life Tips:

  • “Emotional Intelligence” today tells us that being a successful performer is more about what you’re like than what you know.
  • Even if you do the right thing for the right reason, things won’t always work out. But you’ll find it rewarding to have done right.
  • Some people insist on being right about everything. It’s in their DNA. I ask them this question: Do you want to be right or successful?
