Welcome to week four of Monday Morning Choices, Morning Choice # 3 . Hope that last week was a successful week for your group and that now you are into the swing of your meetings. It is important to continue meeting and making time for your conversations to happen. Don't lose momentum.
This week we are going to focus on evaluating our friends while focusing on choosing the right enemies.
Values are the beliefs that we hold closest to us. Know your values and stick to them, because you will always have enemies. Your enemies according to, "Monday Morning Choices," are created because your values are in direct competition with their values or beliefs.
No matter what you do you will likely have enemies of some sort. Whether it's because your better at your job, prettier or more organized you will have people that stand on the other end of the line from you. It's important to make your choice on who your enemies are going to be by sticking to your values that you hold close.
This chapter suggests that you need to ask the question, "who are your enemies?" This will help you answer other questions, for example, why are they your enemies and who are they as individuals?
When I was growing up my parents constantly told me, "that who I hung out with determined who I was." I didn't believe them. I thought that I would be defined by the choices that I made, but it was not true then and it is not true now. Who you surround yourself with in the office will determine what path you are on. However, it may also save your work life.
We cannot make everyone like us all the time. You can chose your values, stick to them and then surround yourself with people who feel the same as you.
