Two men look out through the same bars: One sees the mud and one the stars. – Frederick Langbridge

In the early 2000s, I was a part of a project team to eliminate paychecks and paper payroll statements at JPMorgan Chase.  It may not sound like a big deal now, but back then, it was for the 60,000 plus people that received them. Further, to our knowledge, no other company had done it at scale.

Concerns, despair and even a bit of controversy began to stir as folks believed that employees were pretty wed to “their paper.”  However, as a team, we stayed focused on “the stars.” We saw the possibilities for the employees and the company, and got it done!

I have learned that as you come face-to-face with challenges, your perspective can make the difference.   You can focus on the crud and despair of the mud or the wonder and possibilities of the stars. That is a choice.
