Lynne Curry: A new outlook can benefit

Lynne Curry has a Monday column in the Anchorage Daily News about management and job issues. Her firm is The Growth Company

She gives good advice with well-chosen words. Some of this advice is good off the job, too. For example,

….Let the 2005 past be past. It’s easy to become stuck in the past, to think thoughts you’ve thought before and continue to reach the same conclusions. It’s tempting to try to rework situations or relationships that didn’t pan out. But, do you want to stay stuck?

If a supervisor, co-worker, employee or situation made your life miserable last year, and you don’t want to carry negative issues forward, don’t. The value of challenging situations lies in the learning you take from them and not the continued re-experiencing of what was difficult. Why carry dead weight forward? Let the past be past….

However, some people and institutions, perhaps especially those serving older people, have a tendency to say “Get over it!” so they won’t be held accountable for their mistakes and damage. Lynn also advises here

• Admit the areas of your responsibility.
• Admit mistakes and limits.
