The Consistency Fallacy

February 28, 2017

Here’s a question for you.  Are the choices you make today, in terms of the company you work with, the job you do, or the personal choices you make, consistent with who you used to be, who you are today, or with who you want to be in the future?  Is it desirable, or even possible, to have those three be congruent?

As I see it, people often act and react as if there is consistency in life.  We believe the fallacy that there is consistency in our behavior, in our feelings, in our needs, and in our performance.  But, is that the truth?  If we are taught to approach our work and life with that perspective, what is the potential damage? What are the opportunities we miss?

We will never grow as much as we could.  

We will never fully achieve our potential.  

Why?  Because we’re too busy trying to be and train and react like that person we were twenty years ago.Who are you now?  What can you do to ensure that the you of tomorrow is also being considered?
