Often, we have entrenched views when we are going into meetings or conversations.

Recently, I met with a client who had made up his mind about taking a promotion. Bottom line up front, he decided, for a number of reasons, not to take it.

During our discussions my client highlighted his concern for the conversation he needed to have about his decision with his boss. He had firmly made up his mind and was adamant he wouldn't change it.

It was then that I challenged him with the following question: "What would need to happen to change your mind?

After some resistance, my client managed to come up with some ideas that could potentially sway his position on the matter.

The outcome was that my client had now been moved from his entrenched position and was now prepared to be more open about the conversation with his boss.

What are your entrenched positions and what would need to happen to change your mind?

Think about a time when you met with failure or loss. Think about a time when your plans were thwarted.

Now, think about what good came from that occasion.

"Just do what you can."

This is going to be today's mantra.

A while ago, I posted a photo of my garden with a mention of something, sometimes attributed to the Dalai Lama, about embracing working in the garden so as to learn about the meaning behind futility.

Today I've had a little more insight around this. Our work on ourselves, and with others, is never done. Our growth and our development and our change plan is not something that we will ever complete. If we are truly to become lifelong learners then we have to accept that we will never get to the end of that particular road.

Therefore, just do what you can.

Just do a little bit today and a little bit tomorrow. If there comes a day where you take a step backwards, that's okay. Acknowledge that and then take another step, however small, forward again.

One day you will wake up and look behind you and see how far you have come.

It would be nearly every week that I have a #discussion with a #client on the #value of #writing down what they have #learned from particular situations. The ones that do tell me that they tend to learn the #lessons faster. The ones that don't tell me that they tend to 're-learn' lessons over and over again.

Apart but from the fact that I am a Dr Who fan from way back, I love the message David Tennant is giving us here. (1 minute)

"Everything will be okay, but it's up to us to make it okay."
