Remember when you met the new guy with the weak handshake so you immediately decided he wasn’t fit for the job?  Or that time your coworker came to a meeting with a head full of wet hair and you decided she was incompetent?  Or maybe the office “know it all” was about to spout out another idea and you cut him/her off because you were just not in the mood?

We all have moments of cynicism at work, eve if it’s not your normal state.  However, even a brief moment of cynicism can have long term negative impact at work.  What if that guy you wrote off was exactly what you needed on the team?  Or if the office know it all actually DID know it all in this particular case?

In this week’s video we discuss how you can beat cynicism before it even starts with a simple Jedi mind trick that can have you seeing the world differently in as little as 24 seconds.
