Similar but different

Similar but different houses

Similar but different is perhaps a way to define the uniqueness of us all.” #bgdtcoaching.

Progress in any field of work is without doubt a question of personal development put into practice to achieve maximum potential. Our individuality gives each input a twist as we interpret, amend and embrace the learning for the sake of moving forward in our desired career endeavour.

Similar but different‘ may be the informal title we apply to the offering covered by the general heading of ‘Customer facing service’. On each interaction with stakeholders we have the opportunity to employ our best efforts to get the task done well.

From a wider perspective, the variety of life experiences ensures each of us has similar but different interactions throughout the week. Our attitudes and outlook also influence how we live the moment, regardless of the setting or situation.

Our reactions to events likewise can be similar but different, depending again on our approach to things as well as our attachment to the matters in question, although this is not always easy to put into words for others.

Furthermore, ‘similar but different‘ is a catch-all summary to explain our preferences in the various areas of work and life, particularly when dealing with non-essential matters. A blue or a black pen? This sandwich bar or that one? To be fair, it doesn’t really change anything under most circumstances.

Kindest regards.

Variety of life

August 24, 2014

“The variety of life is enhanced by the uniqueness of each of us.” #bgdtcoaching.

It may seem obvious to say that the variety of life, in whatever format we wish to explore, is a richness benefitting us all. However, for most of us it is easy to take this for granted as we slash and burn our way through the day, busy being busy.

The variety of life is that element which offers us the opportunity to see things from various perspectives without being obliged to say one is better than another. Tapping into the variety of life, we are able to experience our existence in ways unique to us as our individuality, even if not understandable to other folk.

Similarities of course exist in many areas of life and this contrast with the variety of life, it could be argued, is itself a part of what makes life so special. Yet how we choose to interpret this issue concerning the variety of life is itself a personal matter.

For now, thanks for reading this ‘Variety of life‘ post today.

One of many

November 8, 2012

Stones on the beach

What unites us is surely greater than what separates us.

However, as humans we are each a unique character with a personal way of being.

One of many maybe, but one nonetheless.

We all bring something to this world irrespective of whether we stand out like a rock or mingle with the shingle.

One of many to many, ‘the one’ to some: who looks to you because without you they would be lost at work, alone in their existence, or unloved in life?

Many times problems arise as we start comparing ourselves with others. Examples abound of ‘them’ doing this or that, going here and there, barely pausing for breath as they update their status. Social media or social hype?

That we can choose who to follow, what to like or when to connect even remains an area, one of many hopefully, over which we still have control. It’s true pressure to conform can be enormous, yet despite that, or possibly because of it, individuality deserves recognition.

Thanks for spending a few moments here today. If you’d like to leave a comment on the question of one of many, please leave a comment below.

To discuss how judgment-free coaching could be the ideal setting for you to explore your goals and choices, please send me a DM on Twitter (@bgdtcoaching) or an e-mail via my website at http://www.bgdtcoaching.com/

Thanks again and kindest regards.
