The reports are in. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are hearing more and and more about how having an attitude of gratitude enhances our lives – and our performance. In this November Hot Take episode, Maria shares about how embracing gratitude will not only strengthen your empathy, but how it can help you to improve your life.
- Despite the misinformation surrounding the Thanksgiving season, it is so valuable to step back and be thankful for what we do have.
- Pausing is essential to building empathy – it allows us to see, hear, and notice them in a way we can’t when we are always rushing about.
- Going fast makes us less productive and less effective – by slowing down we are able to have more of an impact than we realize.
“Steadying yourself to think about what you can be grateful for enables you to slow down enough to notice who and what is around you.” — Maria Ross
