Monday is our day to re-commit ourselves to our personal values, goals, priorities and protocols.
We are re-committing to the daily decision to define our day by the meaning of life. It’s at the top of TableThink’s ten core values:
I will live a meaningful life. I will:
1. Love God.
2. Love myself.
3. Love others.
In other words, relationship is the meaning of life. It requires intentional action to keep all three components of relationship . . . God, self, and others . . . first and foremost. This is especially challenging when there’s a long to-do-list to complete.
When we are task-driven rather than relationship-driven our “why” in the day is misplaced. Of course, there are many reasons to distract us from giving value to our relationships. It comes down to a decision to do what matters.
We’ve learned to make time for a check-in when we are working on TableThink projects, giving the team time to debrief as well as to dream.
An important piece to the check-in is to listen to understand rather than to fix one another. This means we refrain from interrupting or talking over one another. We’ve made a purposeful decision to respect what is said. And. We choose to be nice to each other, which is often missed in the world around us.
The check-in underlines the value of relationships at TableThink. It not only helps to keep our team strong but has often been a catalyst to inspire us to make innovative changes.
When all is said and done, a check-in is vital for relationships.
