When I look at myself and my relationship to the environment, I look in 3 dimensions:
- Time – The now > today > this week > this month > this quarter > this year > this life phase > long-term
- Altitude – What is right in front of me/the next step/the details to the
- Development – How you are growing, maturing and developing mastery vs. what the environment is supporting and how is it changing.
I feel we are being asked to develop the ability to look at ourselves, our goals, and our environment from multiple perspectives.
We need to learn how to refocus the lens-finder to ensure we stay on our path.
Each of us has a preferred perspective.
Some of us lean toward the right-here, right-now and working with
Others of us are visionaries with grand, long-term visions of a revolutionary future.
We’re being asked to accommodate the entire spectrum.
Where do you want things to go long-term? What needs to happen in the short-term to get there? (Time)
What is happening now? How do your actions impact you? Your neighbors? Your locality? Your environment? Globally? (Altitude)
How are you coping with complexity? How do your systems accommodate complexity? What is your environment supporting? (Development)
I’ll talk about each of these dimensions in the next few posts.
