Catching People Doing Things Right

May 26th 2006

It’s easy to catch people doing things wrong, isn’t it?  We see someone make a mistake or not do something the right way and we highlight their mistake.
 

Isn’t it just as easy to catch someone doing things right?  Sure it is, but how often do we focus on what’s right versus what’s wrong?  I know I could use some improvement in this department.
 

I’m optimistic for the most part, and would consider myself positive – again, for the most part.  But I also like to get things right, and appreciate it when people around me get things right, and for some reason, I’m quick to spot mistakes…and I need to be just as quick and sensitive to when things are right.  And not only recognize when they’re right, but take time to celebrate when they’re right.
 

What do you think would happen if instead of the norm being to catch people doing things wrong, it was to always look for people doing things right and reward them?
 
My guess is we’d have happier employees – and family members – who would strive to do more things right so they could be rewarded.
 

So for the rest of the day, let’s see what we can do to extenuate the positive and minimize the negative, and see what kind of positive effect it has on our day…as well as those around us.
