I’ve been on the road for over two months now. We are about to embark on our first real work trip, and I’ve been thinking about what I want, and how I want it to be. But I was still thinking, “what are we going to do on the road?”, and that’s when I realized I was about to miss my next real adventure.
Ive found that the best way to learn is to do it, and i was excited to get back with the team to see what we have been working on. Ive got an amazing group of people and a great team of people, but at the same time Ive got a little bit more to learn and I want to learn. I got home last night and had a long video conference with the rest of the team.
I hope you all enjoyed that video conference. I think it was a great way to take the discussion about what we are doing to the next level, and I think we have a lot to do to make sure we stay ahead of the curve. One thing I will say is that we are in a great place, in a really great place, and we are doing good things, but there is always room for improvement. At the end of the day, we are all driven by passion.
We are driven by passion. We are passionate about our work. We are passionate about our vision of where we want to end up and what we want to do. We are passionate about making sure that we get it right. And all of this is great in that we are passionate about it, but it also means that there are times when our passion gets in the way of our vision.
We were driving a car today. In the car, we were driving to a place called The Hub. The Hub is a business hub. It’s literally in the middle of the city, and it’s all new construction right now. It’s one of the most exciting places in the city. But we were driving there and there was this place that appeared out of nowhere and the car just sat there. The car was still accelerating and it wouldn’t go any faster.
What happened? A part of our brain is in control of the car. It just sits there. We could see the car accelerating, but we were not in control of the car. We were in control of the driver. But we were not in control of the car. The driver controls the car, but in the end it still just sits there.
I think this is just a result of something called “the illusion of control.” We all have an image in our minds of how things will turn out, but to truly be in control of a situation, we have to have some power to alter it. The illusion of control is when we think things will happen the way we want them to happen, but in reality they don’t.
The illusion of control is in part because we are so involved in the control of our lives (in the same way that if we were the ones who were controlling our life, we would always have to be aware of what was happening in order to keep it going) that we forget we’re in control of things. We often feel like we are in control of things, but we’re not.
The illusion of control is because we are so busy trying to control things that the things we need to control are rarely happening.
Some of the things we can do are really quite basic, and in doing so they become easier. For example, we can try to relax more, stop eating the same stuff, and try to take a bit less risk. That way we’re getting better at the things we need to do but it takes longer, and we’re less aware of what’s going on in the world.
