Attempting to curate one’s image can limit the scope of possibilities they consider. Does your view of yourself impede achieving the results you desire?

We are constantly told to look at the big picture. It’s an easy thing to say that only the end result of our labors truly matter. It’s only when we focus on each detail and make each the best it can be, do we make the adequate extraordinary.
“Whatever is rightly done, however humble, is noble.”
Was there a time that you made the mediocre into the extraordinary by focusing on the details?

Our world is full of half-baked facts and information. How do you keep from being fooled?

I don’t know why, but this one, out of all the things that I have ever read, really sticks with me.
Here is the quote:
We live in strange times. We also live in strange places: each in a universe of our own. The people with whom we populate our universes are the shadows of whole other universes intersecting with our own. Being able to glance out into this bewildering complexity of infinite recursion and say things like, “Oh, hi, Ed! Nice tan. How’s Carol?” involves a great deal of filtering skill for which all conscious entities have eventually to develop a capacity in order to protect themselves from the contemplation of the chaos through which they seethe and tumble. So cut your kid a break, Okay?
– Mostly Harmless by Douglas Adams.
Thinking about that quote, how does it impact your own interactions? Does it have any relevance on things outside of personal interaction?
P.S. If you haven’t read the 5th book of the Trilogy, I would recommend it, especially the audiobook read by the author. It’s easily my favorite in the series.

An old story tells of a poor peasant who finds a bottle in the woods. The proverbial genie
appears offering the grant of any wish whatsoever…to which the peasant replied: “Kill my neighbor’s cow.”
Like the peasant, are we often blind to our own mental cages?
Productivity can be enhanced or thwarted by canned ways of thinking and doing. How can we
systematically insure that our habits and patterns of work accrue to the benefit of our organization?
What affect does cultural norm, prejudgement, inertia, etc. have on our work and personal habits? Can you think of others?

“Man does not simply exist, but always decides what his existence will be, what he will become in the next moment.” – Viktor Frankl
Who are you choosing to BE at this point in your life?
(it is your decision, after all)
