Little successes are so enjoyable in life. The noted author, Dan Ariely, describes the process of feeling good about your successes. If you have a great deal of success all at once, then the feeling of satisfaction is less likely to remain with you. If, however, you have a feeling of gratitude and appreciation for a series of small successes, then your good feelings last a lot longer, and you end up enjoying them a lot more. In fact, Ariely even tested this hypothesis in a series of experiments.
When presented with a long drawn out series of little successes, you will feel better about them than a large investment with a huge success. It has to do with the way that we respond to success. Because we are able to normalize our thinking…it’s called adaptation…to whatever happens around us, we are always thinking of new ways to make ourselves happy. We are always wishing to make our good feeling last longer.
Unfortunately, many drug addicts and alcoholics think the same way about their addiction. Since their bodies can only handle so many poisons at one time, it is easy for a body to overdose and the person could easily die, even after they are given medical attention.
Avoid the negative side of small successes and give your workers employee drug testing. Workers who are fit for duty will enjoy the product of their hands every day, while incompetent employees who are abusing drugs or alcohol will still be looking toward their next high to feel that small success. Oral fluid drug tests are very reliable, and CMM Technology distributes these all over our country. Urine drug tests and alcohol breathalyser devices, like our Lifeloc FC10, are also included in our storehouse of ware. Let us show you how good it can be to enjoy each tiny grain of work, rather than constantly looking forward to the end of the workday and basking in the addiction of your choice. Let your staff know how much you care about their safety and wellbeing. Enjoy today, but plan for tomorrow. Call CMM Technology today to talk to an informed specialist: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.
