But I have cracked the code to ensuring a great birthday: effective communication.
It's simple, yet effective:
- ask for what you want
- be okay if you don't get it
- plan for yourself
- invite them in, but let others off the hook for your accountabilities
- lower your expectations and they will always be exceeded
These rules can be applied universally: To a project team team, a boss, a spouse. Because it's actually just about being clear. When you are clear the overall anxiety of a group goes down. And the only way to communicate clearly is to be clear yourself. I know what I want, I know how to get it, I am thrilled when others work with me, but I'm also okay if they are unable.
So I hope you all have a great June 2 and thanks for celebrating with me wherever you are!
