I have a confession.
I cannot stand whining. It drives me nuts! It’s like a shrieking noise to my soul. Even my two young kids understand my disgust for whining.
Whining achieves NOTHING. If you know you are a whiner … stop!
Just so you know … when you whine … here’s what others are thinking about you (but likely won’t tell you) …
1. I don’t listen to you.
2. You add no value to this organization.
3. I don’t respect you.
4. I would never hang out with you.
5. You’re an entitlement slacker.
6. You are lazy.
7. You are committed to your endeavors alone, not the Team.
So, on behalf of all the people who will not tell you … that your whining is awful … I will represent them for you. When you whine, you repel people. Three-year olds whine … not adults. Stop whining. Just plain stop it. No good, ever, comes from whining.
