“Above the line” is a concept that has been around for a long time.

It is a useful way of framing the need to be positive in an organisation. Above the line is an attitude that ensures you approach life with a solutions focus, you take responsibility for your own actions and mistakes, you see the possibilities and opportunities to improve and you build others up.

Sometimes life does get in the way and you can drop into blame mode, you can look at things with a negative lens, blame others and be the victim. That is perfectly normal. The problem, though is when you stay below the line.

It is important that you can drag yourself back above the line to see things more positively. You will be a more productive team member and you will enjoy life better.

“Life is 10% what happens and 90% how you react to it.”

You can choose which side of the line you operate from.
