Tell it Straight

Tell it straight

Sometimes we just need to get it off our chest. Vent. Have a whinge. It’s the squeaky wheel that gets the oil.If we don’t tell people what’s upsetting or annoying us, they won’t know and can’t be expected to help.

Here’s an interesting thing. Researchers (yes, them again) say that those people who have a good whinge are more productive workers—as long as they actively work towards DOING something about the problem.

So, stop beating around the bush. Tell people how you feel – but don’t just complain first and think later. If you don’t like the way things are being done, think it through and find a solution. Then speak up.

Think about who you should talk to and don’t go nagging behind somebody’s back – tell them straight and they will often appreciate your honesty.

Be strategic: maybe take time out to make a difference by getting involved. It might be writing a letter to your local paper, donning a pair of gloves and hat on Clean Up Australia Day or turning up at meetings of your sporting club. Maybe you should go along to that Local Council, political party or interest group meeting and have your say?

Whatever you choose, make the choice to channel your energy in a positive way instead of sitting back and complaining about the way other people are doing things.

If you see a problem, tell those who need to know, - and remember, it helps to have a real, workable solution.
