In our continual rush to get things done, we sometimes overlook the most important aspects of our lives, including our relationships with others.

Accordingly, this week's issue of Fulfillment@Work focuses on slowing down, appreciating our colleagues, and making room for trust. I encourage you to take time this week to nurture your most important relationships and reap the benefits of a richer and more rewarding life.

Have an appreciative week,



1. Show appreciation to a co-worker

Think of a co-worker (boss, manager, employee, mentor, co- worker) and schedule a meeting specifically to express the appreciation you have for him or her.

2. Slow down

Slow down and enjoy the work you are doing right now. Don't rush just to finish the work, but enjoy the process so the journey of work becomes a wonderful experience.

3. Be grateful for 8 minutes.

Spend only 8 minutes of your day increasing your awareness of the gratefulness you have at work. You can do this exercise in the morning before your day begins, at lunch, or at the end of your day.

4. Never say “I." Instead, say only “we."

Peter Drucker says, ”The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say "I." And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say "I." They don't think "I." They think "we;" they think "team." They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but "we" gets the credit…. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.”


The glue that holds all relationships together -- including the relationship between the leader and the led -- is trust, and trust is based on integrity.

~ Brian Tracy

We're never so vulnerable than when we trust someone -- but paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy.

~ Walter Anderson

Just trust yourself, then you will know how to live.

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
