On Being Analytical

The ability to think through every aspect of a change is both a gift and a curse.  Analyze too much and the “go-getters” pass you by, sprinting out to a commanding lead.  Don’t analyze enough and you’ll be running the 1600-meter hurdles instead of the 100-yard dash, stumbling over unanticipated obstacles every 5 steps.

The starting point is defined by a very fine line.  In reference to a significant change in a process or organizational culture, it represents a clear balance of understanding versus being understood.  The moment you sense that balance shift, pull the trigger no matter the level of competition in the field.  Chances are good that you’ll break through the ribbon without noticing a single hurdle.

I'm about as transparent as a person can get because I believe transparency to be THE foundational element of trust. Trust and honesty are what bond the most valuable relationships. I've taken pretty much every personality assessment available. Here are the results: Enneagram: Type 2: Caregiver Jung, Myers, Briggs: INTJ DISC: Initiator (DI)--Visionary, Charismatic, Dynamic Strengths Finder: Honesty, Zest, Creativity, Spirituality, Hope Values Assessment: Creativity, Responsibility, Spirituality, Concern for Others, Achievement Every ounce of content on my sites is personally-produced and represents my opinion and mine alone. Whether readers agree or disagree with those opinions and ideas is their prerogative and theirs alone. I do not seek approval or validation, only spirited collaboration with real people willing to open their minds to the possibility that things will never be "normal" again, then discuss ways to move forward instead of living in the past.
