“Getting from A to B is a crucial step to reaching C.” #bgdtcoaching.
We all have the potential to evaluate our current situation from the point of view of assessing where we are compared to where we want to be. With awareness we can choose to move forward safe in the knowledge we are on track towards our goal, or make adjustments and then set out on our amended route. Our choices will take us forward from A to B to C.
There may be times we are obliged to move from A to B knowing the ‘why’, but having no necessity to concern ourselves with the ‘how’. Style, speed and the impact we make along the way are of little importance.
Other moments could place emphasis on the journey itself and require us to not only get from A to B, but do it in a style and elegance befitting the endeavour. On such occasions it is not acceptable to ignore the ‘how’.
On a wider front, developing soft skills within the workplace and society in general is much about taking others into consideration whilst progressing from A to B. It is an increasingly important aspect of working with one’s potential. Perhaps the days of riding roughshod over everyone else towards selective or individual objectives are gone, or at least on the way out, as collaboration takes root.
Thanks for connecting to this A to B post and kindest regards to you.
