“It can be really off-putting when you lose your way somehow.”
– Winnie the Pooh
Not to get too philosophical but most of our difficulties, in businesses and, more broadly, in life are firmly rooted in one thing — misalignment. This is not a new idea. In fact, many philosophies and belief systems explore this concept under one guise or another. You may have encountered phrases like true seeing, being awake and, even, in the zone. Ultimately, these revolve around aligning ourselves with the realities of our environment. When we do, we are not guaranteed success but we can increase our effectiveness and, maybe, more importantly, our peace of mind.
