How suitable to me is my thinking style?

We currently have the mean to assess the level of education, knowledge and problem solving skills. We also heavily use these means when hiring someone or looking for work, among other uses. However, very little focus is put on the drivers behind on the how we use the education, knowledge and how we approach problem solving, “thinking style” is I may. Imagine how much more we could do if we understood and gaged our own thinking style, see where we are and how we can improve it to excel at what we want to achieve, just the same way we can understand and assess our qualifications to do something, like being an accountant.

Innovators

The main difference between an innovator and a follower/copy-cat is that the innovator is willing to bet in his/her idea and risk public ridicule. I wonder… how much more successful and fulfilled people would be if they were more concern about what they are and believe in than what other people think?

Innovation and processes/systems

I wonder why people tend to make innovation and processes/systems two mutually exclusive areas. I can relate that innovation is about change and I also understand the processes/systems is about a set of steps to consistently deliver a pre-defined outcome… I wonder how much more productive a business could be if we were to refer to innovation and processes/systems as two inter-related areas in which processes/systems provide the structure to produce a consistent outcome while innovation is consistently and constantly looking for way to improve processes/systems…

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.

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. This helps me to keep perspective of where I am and where I want to be, while at the same time, it allows me to enjoy the journey, have some fun on the way and see the funny side of everything happening around me. As the end of the working week is about to start, let’s us all have a wonderful, fantastic and fabulous weekend.
