Nothing is too hard and nobody is too busy.
If it’s not getting done it’s just not a priority.
Simple as that.


If something is a priority, it will get done.

Somehow, someway, no matter what it takes we buckle down and figure it out and get there in the end.

If something doesn’t get done that we are capable of doing, then, it doesn’t mean that we don’t think it’s important or we don’t want to do it, it’s just further down the list of priorities.

This is where workplace wellbeing falls for most organisations.

We know it’s important to address it and we read the ever-growing data on how acutely and chronically it impacts business operations, but what’s important doesn’t always make the top of the list.

Put simply, if the work always comes before the person, then the person is not the priority.

If daily tasks consistently encroach on staff recovery time, then recovery is not a priority.

If the psychological safety environment is breached everytime there’s a new ‘crisis’ then psychological safety is not a priority.

We can follow all the frameworks and business tips and shortcuts we like but the truth of the matter is that things will always get in the way and derail the wellbeing of our staff until we make their wellbeing a priority.

Then we’ll find ways to protect and enhance it, no matter the circumstances.

That’s step one.
