Life at the office can be stressful during the holidays. Personal development guru Tony Robbins had a great segment on the Today Show a few weeks ago in which he talks about the “growth” factor. People who suffer serious set-backs and still manage to see the growth opportunity are those that thrive during difficult times.Tony suggests developing a “ritual” as a coping strategy. One that he suggests is getting in the habit of saying focusing on what you do have rather than what you don’t have.

 
To put this in a work context, consider this re-tooling of a sentence:
 
Rather than saying, “I don’t have enough time to get this project done!”, say, “I dohave the key deliverables lined up. Now, I need to prioritize the rest of the stuff and see what can fall off the to-do list.”
