You are who you are, where ever you are

“I recommend participating in a sport to observe your behavior from a different perspective. The next time you’re playing your favorite sport or doing your favorite thing, look for ways that you similarly run your business. After all, your behavior is consistent from activity to activity; it all comes from the same brain, with the same mind and the same consciousness.”

— by Burke Franklin, author of “Business Black Belt”

I don’t care for most of this book, but this quote makes sense to me.

Even if you don’t “run a business,” you DO run a business. It’s the business of your life. It’s your home, your family, your job. How you behave there is how you run your business.

You are who you are, no matter what you’re doing.

Try something new, something unfamiliar. Pay attention to the way you behave in this weird role. It will give you a clearer picture of how you behave in your familiar day-to-day roles. And if you discover things you like about yourself, remember what they are and be conscious of them the next time. Try to improve next time.

When you discover things you’d like to change about yourself, recognize that, too, and use it to your benefit.

You are who you are, no matter what you’re doing.

Make sure you’re the you that you want to be.
