Give Should the Cold Shoulder
Should Needs to Find Its Way Out
There’s a word that is part of our everyday vocabulary that is quite overused. If you read the title, and the heading, you probably know what it is: should.
You likely use it more often than you care to admit. You end up shoulding yourself, when you shouldn’t be.
What is shoulding? Why does this word need to go? If you’re intent on progressing as a leader, should doesn’t have as prominent of a place in your vocabulary as it currently does. Shoulding is taking the easy way out.
The Immense Amount of Shoulds We Use
Here’s how it works. Shoulding is giving yourself the easy out; it makes you feel like you have done something, when nothing has been done.
“I should go to the gym regularly.” You know there is a problem, you know you want to be healthier, but you fail to commit to anything. The result: nothing changes.
“I should take my spouse on a date.” You know they deserve your attention, you know you need to foster that relationship, but you don’t take any steps to improve your relationship.
“I should more clearly define my mission, vision, and values.” You know that these are important steps in creating a culture in the workplace, you know that when clearly defined your team will be more effective, but you don’t take the time to develop and implement them.
This list could go on, and on. So what’s the alternative?
Our Lack of I Wills and I Ams
The human brain is a tricky organism. We know the appropriate action, yet we take the easy way out. There’s actually a particular reason for that. When we “should” something, we create in our brain a definite plan and we definitely complete that plan. “I should go to the gym more often.” Nothing else needs to be done; we have completed our goal.
But if you change it around, and you say, “I will go to the gym more often.” You have an unfulfilled task until you do start going to the gym more often. That uncomfortable situation that you create for yourself gives you the psychological nudge to do more and to do better.
