Is my attitude positive? This is the question we are asking students to contemplate over the next few weeks as we explore in more depth our Value of Service. Attacking a problem with a can do, positive attitude is a must if we are to give our best. Both a positive and negative attitude affects our own work and also the work of those around us. If we are looking to present our best work and give service to the task at hand then it must be approached in a constructive, confident and optimistic manner.
We all know that sometimes, something may happen in the morning that seems to set the tone for the rest of the day. Somehow everything seems to go wrong. A pause can help break the link to a past event and allow us the space to move on fresh, with our full attention and a positive outlook. We can choose our attitude rather than the other way around, in a similar way to choosing a character in a play and fulfilling our role.
