Some days, you're just not feeling it. It's not that you're exhausted; it's that you're not in the mood to do the important task that's in front of you.
But on the job, you need to find a way to do the work anyway, because if we only do important or unpleasant work when we feel like it, we might not ever get it done.
It's useful to learn to do it even when we're not feeling it.
But how do we do that?

Positive intent sounds like a good idea. As we go through our day, we generally have a positive intent in what we do, right?
And yet, we sometimes wonder about others. We wonder about people's motives and agendas. And the more we wonder, often the more negative our assumptions become.

That's why I want to help you unlock the power of positive intent.
Make a list of your fondest wishes about your work. Nearly everyone will put "meaningful work" on that list. We might not all say it the same way, but we want to do something that matters, that we care about, and where we feel like we are making a difference. If you have that in your work, you are blessed. If you don't, you wonder how to find it. And if you are leader, you would like to help others find it right where they are.
