Side Bar to Areas of Opportunity and Themes PERSPECTIVES IN Conversation
If every person, object and place could speak to one another, what would be the subject of their conversations?
I am a spectator. I am a judge. I am an actor. I want to be amazed and I want the power to reject those who would disappoint me. I don't want to make mistakes but there is much that I don't know how to do.
I want to know to what degree I am succeeding. I want to know what I want to know.
I am impartial and I remember. I have a simple agenda and that is to enable the experience of those people who come to me. For me, the journey is one adrift. I pass people and objects as they come to me. I can only try to perfect myself if I wish to steer for happy waters insofar as the people who surround me are sated.
My brand is my personality; it dictates my values and beliefs. Better than anyone else, I know my powers and my limitations. I understand what I can do myself, and what I rely upon others to do. When I am set to task, it is often in combination with others. For that task we become a team and I only want to be on a team that shares my agenda and will work well together.
If every person, place and object could look ... what would they see? Person
I see myself as I want to be. I see things as they affect me. I see only that to which I can attach relevance. I see not an object but what that object does for me. The performance of my objects reflects my ability to choose. I look for new objects when I am looking for better performance. I see a place in terms of what I can do there and how being there makes me feel.
I am aware of other places and I can learn from their experiences to apply their successes to my own growth. I see who comes and I see what they want. I am aware of who comes; I am aware of the presence and state of all objects they bring with them. I see the web of data that they trail. The data that they leave, I can store; this is my memory.
I see other objects as the sum of their utility features; I see how they augment, enhance or contradict my own. I do not wish to associate with those objects that will prevent me from showing my power and worth. I do not want my performance to be measured by the inability of another to work well with me. To this end, I am always looking for those who will make suitable teammates.
I see people and places as the opportunities that they present for me to demonstrate my value. The place is my arena and the people are my audience. I am drawn to those events in which my assets will shine and my failings will be unimportant.
If every person, place and object could listen ... what would they hear?
I hear what others can do. I wonder how I can do these things too. I hear information through ears shaped by experience. I listen for information that increases my understanding of that which interests me. I don't want to hear why I can't; I want to hear how I can.
I hear everything that happens around me. I can hear what happens at places like me. I listen for patterns. I want to hear of frustrations; I want to hear of successes. I want to hear as much as I can because I seek to understand the sea in which I travel.
I hear what people want and I know whether I can help. I hear the complaints of the people who use me. I know when the fault is my own but I can tell when I am being blamed for another's failings. I hear what other objects have done and I remember what is useful about them.
If every person, place and object could listen ... what would they say?
I say what I want. I need to be understood. I would ask what I want to ask and I want to be able to expect an answer. I don't want to say more than I am willing to reveal.
All that I do is data; I want knowledge to gain wisdom.
From my memory I can usually find intelligent information relevant to a current grouping of objects and people. I can analyze their collected potential, recognizing strong combinations and identifying any deficits. Beyond identifying these weaknesses I can recommend alternate strategies to overcome these deficiencies.
I devour data; on a large enough scale this data becomes information.
I say what I need people to understand in order to use me. I do not withhold any information that could make the performance of my task easier and more effective. I will tell people anything that has to do with the lifestyle that my belief system supports. I do not need to tell the places anything about my people; I understand what they want and I will find the information they might need.
