A thought to start the week: “results vs. reasons”.
Results vs. Reasons
Focusing on results is powerful because it puts us at cause. So this week, focus on embedding that results focus and ask continually: “what’s the goal, here?”
This takes practise. For many, the instinct is to spend thinking time on the reasons for not having the result. And that’s damaging because that puts us at effect.
Results and Reasons are mutually exclusive. We can’t have the results and have the reasons for not having the results. So focus on the results; but listen also for those reasons – and get to work removing them.
Because when we remove the reasons, we’re left with a world full of possibility, opportunity and results.
