Changes are happening fast and then what?

Most people know that things are constantly changing and very fast. Businesses, that resist change, tend to go out of business very quickly too. In addition, keeping up with on-going changes is not good enough. Success, be that in our career, business or any other aspect of our life, is based on our ability to translate what we learn from the changes into effective and productive actions as quick as possible. The better we become and translating the learnings into actions and the quicker we do it, the easier it is to achieve success in what we want.

Changing without change?

We all want to be something and we work toward becoming that something. One of the biggest barrier we have, maybe the biggest, is our own thinking. We must learn to think like what we want to become. If we want to be a millionaire person, we must think like a millionaire. If we want to be successful in business, we must think like a successful business person. If we want to… I wonder, how is it that many people want to become something else, while they keep doing the same thing they have always done and thinking the same way? How is it they want to change without changing anything? I wonder…

Keeping things in perspective?

There are times in which we need to behave in this or that way and other times we behave the way we want. In my case, I like to keep in mind that life is too serious to live it seriously.

As the end of the working week is about to start, let’s us all have a wonderful, fantastic and fabulous weekend.

Job satisfaction?

Let’s imaging that we find the best teacher there is in the world. The absolute best and we put him/her to teach grade 1 in primary school, while he/she loves to teach grade 12 in high school… What would the outcome be? Would he/she last? Would he/she do a respectable job at teaching? Would he/she be happy teaching grade 1? I wonder… how is it that so many people work at a particular job that they dislike to great extend and keep doing it just for the money? What is money for if they are unhappy? How is it they close their mind to other jobs, other opportunities? How good quality of a job can they do if they dislike it so much? How can they get a pay increase or a promotion when they clearly prefer to be somewhere else? I wonder…

Opportunities: Where are they?

It is amazing the number of opportunities that we come across every day and we let them pass because: we did not realise it was an opportunity until too late, we think it is not for us, it is too small, it is too big, I don’t have [insert] and the list goes on and on. I wonder… If we focus on looking for opportunities, how many opportunities will we find today?

Achievement: Purpose, outcome

It is amazing how much we can achieve when we have a clear purpose and outcome. For example: It always amaze me how much I get done the day before I go on holidays… Purpose: Be free to go on holidays; Outcome: Finish all my work.
