A Better Business Life

“Hope is not a strategy but dreams can surely become a reality.” – Peter Weedfald

I believe everyone has a varied, distinctive definition of “A Better Life.” In business as example, some team members hunt for a better life through peer acceptance. Some seek open recognition and reward. Others pine for the dignity of knowledge in relevant subjects to accelerate their core while many are thoroughly balanced and happy with their business expectations, results and career potential. A few sadly allow their heart to battle their mind motivating crest fallen emotions causing unintended misdirection, misalignment, misunderstanding of how or what to focus on; what to accomplish to add value, to enjoy personal contentment and growth in their business life.

Remembering we spend at least half of our lives toiling, working, and providing. This means we need to enjoy and prosper in heart and mind through our business lives to truly be happy and team prosperous.

As we know, a better life at work is not created nor matured as a solitary art form. It is not something to simply hope or dream about as hope is not a strategy and dreams are not always a reality. Caring and sharing mentor leadership with empirical reflections and exposure to those hungry for a better business life is more than an obligation in my humble opinion. It is a path for a better life even for those leaders granting and protracting the helping hand. It primes heart and mind for those team members who pine for more as defined by the second definition of the word obligation: “the condition of being morally or legally bound to do something, to take action for another.” The first question to ask and to understand to those seeking a better life in business is simple:

“Do you have a plan?”

In my spare weekend time I composed “A Better Life” in Studio W to remind myself of the importance and relevancy of a balanced heart and mind to ensure a prosperous life.

Why this particular subject to write about, to engage and dialogue? One word: obligation. Two words: giving back. At least I believe the third definition of obligation offers clarity to this writing: “A debt of gratitude for a service or favor once received.”

We as small, medium and large business employees, employers have a multitude of business and team obligations that feed opportunity, realize success or failure. We the informed and initiated are surely obligated to auger, share and realize a plan to gain profitable productivity and market growth. We do this through smart, vibrant and assiduous team inclusion. Or sadly in some instances coldly, wrongly through failed delusions in the language of down trodden, misaligned results: a large museum of failed products, failed intentions, failed hearts and minds: failed obligations. We are motivated and moved by the spirit of generosity because we ourselves are the recipients of a better life from another who shared, cared and delivered us our path and eventual plan to ensure a better life.

There are surely in your own mind a multitude of important characteristics, questions, key topics you would suggest to another to ensure a better life for all who surround you in business: for all you are obligated to help and give back to at work. I offer just a few words below which I know I do not need to lengthy define for you as they are a fleeting glimpse of the obvious. These example words congener the language and action of creating, serenading, relating and obligating “A Better Life” for your consideration, for their consideration: for potential sharing and caring for those we obligate our hearts, minds, leadership and well-being to.

The most significant, interpolative core-characteristics and eventual progress report card for personal measurement for leaders to share and review, to docent and ensure a fruitful, highly balanced foundation for a better business life for all team members are (in no particular order):




A better business life is not granted, given or guaranteed. It is created and mollified through leadership example, through learnings, through someone reaching out in a caring and sharing inspirational envelope for you, for them. I am lost in admiration for caring and sharing leaders. Leaders who are obligated by heart and mind not just by responsibility to ensure those in their immediate business lives also earn the right and joy to be the heartfelt obligator over time. Although hope is not a strategy, dreams can surely become a reality with the right caring and sharing mentorship.
