How Mental Housekeeping Gets the Job Done

By Sandy Schroeder

My mother always said, “A new broom sweeps clean.” I think she was right in more ways than one. When we use a fresh broom every morning to sweep out the doubts, a clean start is unbeatable.

That clean start can generate a positive attitude that makes a difference. I have watched people wilt under a relatively small amount of work, while another person with a really good attitude tackles and finishes a much bigger load.

Take another look - When you face a mountain of work, you can hide as you gradually make your way through it. Or you can take a closer look and see what might be done with it. Instead of lumping it together, there may be a way to break it apart and come up with new approaches. Take control and get it done.

Love what you do - When you choose a job, attitude really is all. If you look forward to work in the morning, you may have the right job. If you have the right job, keep right on going. If you are less than thrilled, keep the job, but keep looking.

Ditch the mental clutter - If you tend to carry a lot of little reminders with you, find a way to offload them. Create an ongoing list or post reminders on your phone or computer. Now  you don’t have to worry about them. You can just power ahead with your work.

Keep a reserve tank - We all need a backup tank of research and good ideas that we can tap when we have an off day. Tap it when you need it, and add to it when things are going well and you have extra energy.

Keep reaching out - The most effective people that I have ever worked with were always looking for more. When they flew for work they always carried extra reading material with them. When they attended a conference, they made it a point to meet as many people as possible. Often they had the answers when nobody else did.

Connect and reconnect - People come in all shapes, sizes and flavors. You may not click with each one, but you won’t know until you try. When you meet new people, make a point of really listening to them, and asking more questions. The more times you really connect with new people the more you will learn about them and about people in general.

All of us develop little tricks to stay productive. If these work for you, use them and expand on them. That’s what I call a “clean sweep!”
