"Have to" versus "Get to" Thinking
How many times do we say to ourselves, “I have to…”?
There’s no sense of purpose in this mindset. "I have to" feels mundane, monotonous. The next time you catch yourself thinking you “have to” do anything, stop. Think about the difference it could make in those instances to say “I get to.”
- “It’s Monday. I get to go to work today.” Employees who’ve lost their jobs during COVID would gladly switch positions with you!
I invite you to try “I Get to…” this week. Notice how fulfilled and fortunate you feel. Many of my professional coaching clients have found this simple shift adds more meaning to their work and life.
