Sometimes you’re in a relationship with someone where there is so much history, it’s almost impossible to not take harmless actions as vitriol.
The same thing happens in companies. Sometimes employees have been through a lot. Acquisitions, friends coming and going, or a lack of growth opportunities. With no change in employee base, those changes can take their toll.
What’s interesting is that all that history to a new employee never existed. New hires come in with a fresh set of eyes and new motivations.
That new blood can be critical for a company that needs to be reinvigorated. Same can be said for an employee who has been through a lot who may need their own fresh start.
New blood can help everybody in an organization. Or if you’re married and you want a fresh start, think about changing up your schedule. Do something new. Try a new hobby and ultimately get out of the “loops” that cause the baggage behaviors.
Where are you in your life? Do you have too much baggage? Do you need a fresh start of your own?
