Measurement

A few months ago, I wrote that I longed to re-read all the books I have. What was stopping me? Nothing. Just my notion that I was too busy to re-read, that I needed to constantly be discovering something new. What’s the use of trying to discover something new, when I don’t even remember all I’ve read in the past? That I wasn’t living and working true to things I found worthwhile in the books? So I am doing it. I have started to re-read each of the book I have. It feels great, like meeting an old friend who means so much to me, and learning new lesson with the new interaction.

In the measurement world, you set a goal and strive for it. In the universe of possibility, you set the context and let life unfold. Rosamund and Benjamin Zander, The Art of Possibility

Business world has been in many ways measurement world. But results depends on the universe of possibility.

  1. Setting a context, which is really a goal, is very, very important. I am discovering that living in Tao-like attitude without a goal, is frustrating.

    Life unfolds no matter what I do. In The Art of Possibility, Ben Zander was talking about it all in the context of creating great music. Having a great life as a context for living is not good enough to make great life happen. I am finding out I must be explicit about what would make my life great, such as, being a contribution to help young people to dare live for their dream.
