Unproductive thoughts – Just don’t
Maybe this list is just the tip of the iceberg and they might not be the worst.
I’m sure there are numerous examples that you can add – and please do so in the comments section.
These are just some of the unproductive thoughts that I excavate when coaching employees. To be totally clear: I encounter them at all levels, in every industry, in many different cultures, and in my own thinking.
So here we go, unproductive thoughts at work and in life
If I knew then what I know now.
That won’t work. We’ve tried it before.
It’s stupid to say “I don’t understand.”
Come January first I will start …
I don’t have to explain this. They know me.
That cannot be true.
I will try that some other time.
You shouldn’t just change your opinion.
I know how he thinks about me.
It’s a weakness to admit that you don’t know something.
I will soon make that a priority.
I know what you mean.
How about your turn now?
