The Relationship Between Results and Continuous Improvement

I frequently find that the best business wisdom isn’t. That’s because wisdom, regardless of where it originates, tends to have broad application.

In that vein, I was struck a few years back by the insight of a quote by Archbishop Temple, which places the spirit and caliber of our earnest effort over the ends for which we strive. Shouldn’t we be thinking about business this way?

A friend recently forwarded me a post from Bud Caddell’s What Consumes Me blog entitled “how to be happy in business – venn diagram”. If you are in business and you are committed to BOTH your personal satisfaction and your business success (and why wouldn’t you be?) you owe it to yourself to take a look at this brief post. In it Bud shares a simple, but very insightful venn diagram that shows the overlaps between your business strengths (What We Do Well), satisfaction (What We Want To Do) and ability to earn (What We Can Be Paid To Do).
