“Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day; wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit”~ Elbert Hubbard
Hearts quietly murmur truth, while actions out our fool. Fooling around tricks few.
You’re Not Fooling Them
You’re not fooling them when you say:
- customers come first, but metrics scream financials
- work-life balance is vital, but you call them on vacation
- they’re high-potential, but their career is stagnated
- you value development, but keep cancelling training
- you believe in transparency, and withhold information
- teamwork is paramount, and reward backstabbers
You’re Not Fooling You
You’re not fooling you when you say:
- my family comes first, and leave no time for them
- health is important, but don’t exercise
- you believe in empowerment, but micromanage under stress
- it’s not about the money, but stay in a job you hate
- you always tell the truth, and tell a little white lie
- you believe in transparency, but tell your boss what she wants to hear
There’s always a justification, a reason, for “just this once.”
Our human struggle is to stop fooling ourselves into believing we’ll do it differently tomorrow.
Tap into instincts to be what you feel. Live deeply from that place.
