Are you doing what's good for business or what's right for you? Is there a discrepancy between the two?
People live on such a superficial level. 'How's business? Good?' Then life is as it should be. 'Tough?' Something needs to be done.
Work harder, work smarter, change strategy, cut costs, sell more, outwit the competition (with a smile on your face).
Is increasing income for shareholders all there is to living? Now there's a decent question!
Does perceived difficulty open your eyes and heart to what matters, or do you just do more of the same, more tenaciously and stubbornly than ever? Is business all you can think and talk about, all you care for, a shallow substitute for the life you are missing?
Is upping your income your priority or is there more of the ultimate in your field of inner vision?
After a reshuffle, are you now working for the opposition because they pay more and have perkier perks? Have you married for money? Are you paying the price?
What's right for you is good for business, otherwise you are in the wrong business. You need one that is an extension and an expression of who you are.
It must grow with you, deeper and wiser. It must be drawn up into the now, as you are, becoming more and more alive. Business is secondary at most, being is primary at least.
Is selling more important than spirit? Is productivity taking precedence over presence? Is strategy superseding surrender? Are you aggressive or aware?
Are you living in love?
I’m just asking.
