Monday's Make It So Motto
Dated: February 1 2021
“It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose.
That is not a weakness; that is life.”
Great lessons are learned, (sometimes), by watching your favorites on TV! I’m a moderate Star Trek Fan and have always preferred, Star Trek: The Next Generation, forsaking all others!
Communication is Key
In one of the episodes, Captain Jean Luc Picard learns to communicate with his captors in their native tongue – which has no concept of the individual, and consists entirely of metaphors, to escape. It shows the power of understanding and talking to people in their own language, both literally and figuratively. Watch how friends and even strangers communicate. Learn the key phrases and terms they use and engage them in a way that is familiar. Not only does it show respect, it will improve relationships.
Join the Away Team
Starfleet Officers knew the importance of delegation, and they were often on the ground with their teams, exploring new territories and negotiating with both friends and foe.
Treat everyone like colleagues! We’re all in this together! Get directly involved with projects, participate in activities, volunteer your time for great causes and most of all, have a smile and a kind word for EVERYONE - You’ll empower others and yourself!
Stay True to Your Values
When stranded in the Delta Quadrant thousands of light-years from Earth, Captain Kathryn Janeway and the crew of the USS Voyager relied on Starfleet’s core values to see them through their decade-long journey home.
Having a clear set of values keeps you motivated, focused on your goals and accountable for your actions. It also gives you something to draw on when you have to make tough decisions or find yourself in less than perfect situations.
Encourage Disagreement, Ask for Advice and Embrace Diversity
What would Captain Kirk be without the cool rationality of Commander Spock or the vocal discontent of Doctor McCoy?
The best Starfleet captains surrounded themselves with advisors and crew from all different backgrounds. They embraced diversity and encouraged difference of opinion. Dissent, disagreement and diversity on the bridge lead to some of the most ground-breaking, innovative moments in Star Trek. It’s an inspiration for all of us in all walks of life.
Silly, but if there’s one thing we learned from the Star Trek Captains, it was that staying on top meant staying hydrated!
Whether you enjoy a cup of Earl Grey Tea like Picard or prefer a long black like Janeway, hydration is important for keeping your mood, energy and concentration levels in check.
Personal health is important, but promoting a ‘coffee culture’ is a great way to bring people together, away from their computer and TV screens, to socialize and seek support, not only during difficult times, but at all times.
The Bottom Line
In the words of Captain Jean Luc Picard, “Make It So!”
