We all have shadowy aspects of ourselves. How do we find strength in our darkness? Where is the power and beauty in what we fear to be unpalatable to the others?
So many of us, drawn to professions where we care for others, are empathetic. This is likely one of your greatest strengths and weaknesses. Caring so much. How do you deal with the fact you really care about people?
What separates the good service providers from the great ones is the ability to do the tough emotional work. To see, listen to and anticipate the needs of your clients. And there are times when our clients can be demanding of things beyond the scope of our work.
Change is tough. It’s more difficult when we focus too much on the mountain instead of the rocks. What rocks can you move today that will help you move a mountain?
We all move through the world with a different style. We all have a different way of being in the world. When you encounter people with a style that’s different than yours, what happens? Do you continue to go with the flow? Do you adapt to who they are? Do you insist on your style or way of being?
What do you collect everyday? Some things we collect for pleasure. I love surfboards and ridiculous diplomas and certificates. My wife loves Japanese woodblock prints. If we don’t take care of our collections, they quickly become junk.
