We could break down people’s goals into… a P.I.E. chart… comprising of 3 types:
PIE: People, Ideas, Execution.
- Execution folk discuss what they’re doing, and how they could do it differently. It’s always about action with these people. Ideas come up as a means to execution. Goal = action.
- Idea folk discuss what they could do that differs from what they’re doing. They even believe they will, one day. They won’t. Goal = talk.
- People folk discuss other people, places, and events. Not ideas, and definitely not the eminently uncomfortable execution. Goal = comfort.
What’s your goal?
