Random thought that I felt was worth posting. The healthy combination of identity/significance is when you do something that gives you identity/significance that you're not doing for identity/significance.
Everyone wants and needs identity/significance but there's something impolitic when we're doing something for identity/significance.
This is really probably just another way of saying "Do What You Love", and do it for no other reason than you love it.
Most of us have experienced those completely unbelievable almost divined moments. Those moments that make us ask, did something else make that happen or was this thing that feels so specific really just completely random.
If we look to life for a possible answer, we see that often when it comes to questions with one side or the other perspectives, the answer almost always seems to be somewhere in the middle. And that's what I propose. Maybe it's not predefined and maybe it's not completely random. Maybe it's a little of both.
Thought of something today that made me curious. Intertwining the 4 stages of learning with attitude.
1. Unconscious Mean: Unaware (No Motive)
2. Conscious Mean: Aware (With Motive)
3. Conscious Nice: Aware (With Motive)
4. Unconscious Nice: Unaware (No Motive).
The key there is “Motive”. Nice with motive almost feels slightly deceitful and mean with no motive is not intentional. Makes me wonder if 25% of the people out there are genuinely nice people and are only 25% of the people out there intentionally mean.
John Wooden, known as Coach, led UCLA to record wins in basketball. Throughout his life, he shared the values and life lessons he passed to his players, emphasizing success that’s about more than winning.
