584: Why You’re Avoiding Progress

Post thumbnail

We all do it.

Sometimes more than others. Some of us more than others. But we all do it.

Sometimes, after a successful sale, you celebrate and pour that energy into pursuing more people you and your team can help serve and support. Other times, you celebrate then retire into busy-work or reading a blog… allowing the energy of the win to pass you by.

Sometimes, after you solve a problem on a project, you build on the win by seeing how you can take it to the next level, perhaps by documenting the win or making that work even more remarkable. Other times, you sigh a sigh of relief and check your emails instead.

Sometimes, after a great interview, you lean into who you can talk to next, to further your pursuit of contribution and service. Other times, you’ve “done your social bit for the week”, and you withdraw into tasks you deem easier… quieter… or less important.

What makes us do one or the other?

Is it caring enough about your work? Or being desperate or satisfied enough with your efforts?

I think it’s something simpler than that.

I think it’s perspective.

Sometimes we think we’ll ride a high into the sky. We’re just as likely, in this mindset, to fear a setback will slide us right down into hell.

Other times, when we have our perspective right, we recognize the ups and the downs. The ebbs and the flows. We see a success as something worth building upon, something worth repeating, because things won’t always be this way. Not out of fear, but out of respect for the process

How does your perspective affect your meaningful work?

We get what we order. Sometimes we don’t order well, sometimes we don’t order specifically enough. Sometimes we’re not brave enough to send it back if it was genuinely wrong. But we always get what we order.
