What's it worth to you?

What's it worth to you?

“The real cost of change is emotional, not economic. The shift here is from an economic measure of cost to a personal measure of will. … This is the more important discussion and leads to a more realistic consideration of whether or not the price is too high.” 

- Peter Block, The Answer to How is Yes

So the question is: “What’s it worth to you?” 

How much are you willing to change?  YOU personally.  Not the company, not your colleagues, not “the system.”  YOU.

If you’re not willing to commit the “personal measure of will” that’s required to make the change you say you want to make, then the price is too high and you shouldn’t waste your time.

It’s worth the time to ask yourself: “What is it worth to me?”

Strands of Potential and Time...

Strands of Potential and Time...

 

I recently discovered this quote from Cynthia Bourgeault on a random scrap of paper in my desk drawer (I love it when that happens!): 

“…weaving together strands of potential and time…”

It strikes me that that’s pretty much what we’re all doing all the time … weaving together strands of potential and time … to create a life, a career, a relationship, an organization, a family, a community.

Everything around us is created by how we choose to weave together the strands of potential and time that are ours to weave.

As we come to the end of one year and look ahead to another, I find myself contemplating my own strands of potential and time and considering how I want to weave them together in the new year.

What will you do with yours?
