As a philosopher Socrates once said, the unexamined life is not worth living. But the opposite is also true. The unloved life is not worth examining. – Swami Beyondananda
People are motivated for the most part, but they just don’t do it! Motivated by Peter Bregman’s article.
This quote sums up a lot of frustration that individuals and businesses have. I know and you might remember the times when someone said ” If I had … it could have been …” or “Only if I had done this sooner then ….”. So what is the plan for this year? Power yourselves to follow up on your dreams and empower others to fulfil their dreams.
Fear of missing out should be greater than the fear of doing (taking action).Period
We’re not big fans of what I consider “vertical” ambition—that is, the usual career-path trajectory, in which a newbie moves up the ladder from associate to manager to vice president over a number of years of service. On the other hand, we revere “horizontal” ambition—in which employees who love what they do are encouraged to dig deeper, expand their knowledge, and become better at it. We always try to hire people who yearn to be master craftspeople, that is, designers who want to be great designers, not managers of designers; developers who want to master the art of programming, not management.
The above article has made me think about ‘Ambition’ and being ‘Ambitious’. There is a need to recognize the fact about having two types of ambitious people, vertical and horizontal. Secondly people on both sides of horizon need to respect each other. In this world we need people of both the types.
In various aspects of our life, we can be vertically ambitious in certain aspects and horizontally ambitious in others.
I am vertically ambitious when it comes to my career but horizontal ambitious when it comes to other aspects of my life.
