What motivates your performance… do you love what you do OR fear losing what you have?
I believe fear and love are the two sponsoring thoughts / root emotions to our actions. Fear contracts, love expands. Fear runs, love stays. Fear hides, love reveals. Fear hoards, love shares. Fear harms, love heals. Fear grasps, love lets go. Fear attacks, love amends.
If you, or someone on your team isn’t performing, ask this one simple question: “What do you love about your job?” If the answer doesn’t accompany a twinkle in the eye, you’re going to have performance issues over time. You see, love is the greatest, most sustainable jet fuel for performance. Love turns work into play.
