O is for… Options

When your project, or indeed life is getting you down, always remember you have options.

Even when it may seem like you have no choice in something, believe us, you do. You perhaps just need to briefly take a step back from the coal-face and think bigger, or wider, or longer term.

Some people seem content to just let the world, and everything else, wash over them and accept the consequences. You’ll know lots of those people in life; they’re the ones that moan a lot about how bad everything is and how they never have any luck and how nothing ever changes. Well, there’s a reason for nothing ever changing, and that is because nobody’s done anything about it.

Believe it or not, there are people out there that enjoy their job. You can be one of them too! The trick is that you need to work out what your options are and make your decisions based on what you have open to you.

There are lots of examples in the A-Z about what to do in certain circumstances. Be creative and think about how you can apply them to your situation to gain the kind of outcome you would be happier with. Sometimes you need to include some of the more radical, even ultimate, sanctions in your options to give yourself some clarity on your situation.

You always have options.

You may not like the options you have, but you always have options.
