Vickie Milazzo's Thoughts for Success

Thoughts for Success: When You Feel Like You’re Swimming Upstream You Just Have to Turn and Go with the Flow

Yesterday was not a good day. It seemed as though every task I started was taking twice as long as it should and nothing was getting completed. I felt like I was swimming upstream against a strong current much like a salmon in spawning season. I like to start and end my day with a clean desk, a stack full of completed projects and reports from my staff that reflect the same.

My frustration level wasn’t contributing one bit to my productivity. Then I realized I had a choice to make – I could resist the day and all of the trials and tribulations of life and business or I could just turn and go with the flow. After much resistance I finally chose the latter.

I didn’t just surrender and stop working. Instead I focused on the tasks at hand and worked each one until I hit a wall and could make no more headway. Then I shifted to the next task and the next and the next. While I wasn’t completing any one task I was forging ahead and making progress. Instead of fighting the tide and getting frustrated I just turned and went where the flow was taking me and I enjoyed it a lot more than swimming upstream against the current.

You too can make this choice. If a particular legal nurse consultant job is too much or you’re experiencing more than the normal amount of trials and tribulations in your CLNC® business, don’t let it hold you back. Simply turn and go with the flow and see where it takes you. You’ll find a new perspective awaits you that will turn your day around for the better.

Success Is Yours,

  1. I too am learning how to partipate in what is being orchestrated, rather than feeling an excessive pressure to orchestrate. My Dad always would say, “Just do the next right thing”. Thank you for this encouraging article.
