Who set these measures of success ?

We almost never question somethings in life and that sometimes becomes the reason why we never find out what really is going on? This blog is inspired by my recent story consulting work where we found out the real communication challenge only because we decided to further investigate the area that seemed to be working perfectly fine.

What you have to think about is …..

When you have 15 years of experience, it doesn’t mean you are more suitable for the job.

When you weigh less on the scales then before, doesn’t mean you are healthier.

When you have the gift of gab, doesn’t mean you have value to add.

When you say your are busy, it doesn’t mean you are productive.

When you say I have been in the business for a decade, it doesn’t mean you have been successful.

When you say I have written a book, doesn’t mean you are the best seller.

When you say I researched on a topic for 2 years, doesn’t mean you were effective in that research.

When you say low fat, it doesn’t mean no calories.

Who set these measures of success? These measure of success were set by people when they did not have the ability to go on their own journey of investigation but today with the information we have on hand we can go on our journey of investigation and really decide what success looks like.

Don’t settle because it seems right.

Why the QR Code? The answer is in the request below we received from a regular blog reader.

"I attended your story telling course some time back. And I've enjoyed keeping up my knowledge with your blog. You may not have realised however, that the Whole of Government is implementing Internet Seperation. Hence I'm not able to access the links to read your articles. Could I suggest including a QR code in your emails so that I can use my mobile to scan it and gain immediate access to the article? It would be most helpful"
