The Disadvantage is Really an Advantage

Simon Sinek does it again, reminding us that those looking for failings in ourselves or in our companies are looking in the wrong place.  It’s too easy to criticize, too easy to Monday-morning quarterback.

Cheerleading our strengths and successes often gets its own criticism.

“Oh, what a Pollyanna.”

“That’s the job you were supposed to do.”

“So the press release got picked up by the main writer at the Times.  Anybody can write that release”

Today, just for one day, don’t criticize.  Play up the strength.  Go home happy.  Send others home happier.
