May I be frank with you…
I want to talk to you about why the “I” is holding you back.
And no, it’s not about you. It’s not your fault. There are other “I’s” involved here. Those are “I’s” that stick around your “I”.
Within each of those I’s there might be a hindrance, an obstacle in between you and your performance. So to speak, you have to put another “eye” on them to overcome that hindrance.
And when you consider all “I’s” using all “eyes” you may recognize a similarity amongst all of them. It’s that similarity that makes the common obstacle to success in current times and may have a big draw on you professionally as well as personally.
Can you discover that obstacle amongst all “I’s”?
Let me be less cryptic and present them to you.
“It’s never good”
First information held me back because it was scarce. I just couldn’t get the right information for the job because there was not enough information available.
Nowadays information holds me back because there is abundance. I can’t get the right information because there is an overwhelm of it to choose from.
Being an architect of my company, what can I do about obtaining the right information at the right time at the right place to better mine professional success, so the company I work with benefits from me?
Is there some kind of key for this?
It is tiring…
In conditions of having too little information I was used to gain decisive information by inference using logic and base premises.
Nowadays in conditions of having too much information I have to change my method of inference. Now I derive decisive information from circumstances occurring in reality? There is simply too much happening around me to neglect it.
Simple static circumstances for decision making turned into complex dynamic ones. The way I infer; the way how I come to the right decisions cannot be left behind.
What made this transition? Is there some kind of key in this?
I was used to experiment a lot, to be able to scan for all possibilities before I could make a decision. By means of induction I could come to the generic laws valid for all cases, so for next cases I had my decisions prepared.
There is no time for time-consuming processes of induction no longer. I need decisions now. Would not it be nice if I don’t need to induct but can deduct from generic laws right away, being conclusive and decisive in an instant, saving lots of time doing so?
What is the key to this?
Oops! Sorry wrong decision.
Identification on what decision to make used to be so obvious. Does the decision match the values, the vision or mission of the company or not?
But nowadays everything is so fluid. Strategic directions change by the day. They change by every next gust of the storm in which we are.
How can I be certain I making the right decisions? How can I develop confidence, faith, and express that confidence throughout the organization? I miss some… basics
If major decisions cannot stand long, how to make sequences of small decisions that ensure progress?
What key provide me the basics?
So far now…
So far this list in this post. In next post we continue with:
However, consider the list so far. Have you found the commonality amongst them?
Surely you’ve found…
I’ve addressed a key.
But, can there be one key behind the diversity mentioned?
To satisfy some curiosity already, I am working on a webinar, which becomes public soon. It’s called:
“Your Pivot to Progress. Reveal the… (surprise)”
I’m not revealing the whole title yet but I tell you, within this webinar the key plays a major role. Isn’t a pivot not some kind of key?
Anticipate for this key.
Meanwhile, the list is not complete yet.
See next post, to overcome more hurdles.
So there you have it… the first four of twelve reasons why the “I” is holding you back.
Which impacts you the most? Let me know in the comments section below…
Proceed in good fortune,
