Pain  lurks behind the skyrocketing rates of divorce, discord, aggression, violence that plague our society.

Pain that we each feel when we realize that for all the wonders of modern technology, for all the bells and whistles at our disposal that would have been unimaginable to our great grandparents, most people cannot say that they are living lives or working at jobs or careers that make them feel satisfied, fulfilled on purpose.

Sometimes we are so busy doing, that we forget about being.

We are so busy looking at our lives and our careers through the looking glass of the financial bottom line, or comparing what we have or what we do with others, that we have forgotten about the human bottom line.   Why is this human bottom line important? Because it is the human bottom line that drives the ultimate success or failure of our relationships, our careers and our lives.

 

We cannot build a better life, a better business or a better organization with brains and agility alone.

Success means a unique balance of independence and interdependence, a platform of increased communication, collaboration, flexibility and creativity that cannot be bought or acquired, rather it must be learned by using the very changes and challenge we face to help us learn to communicate better, collaborate more and to ignite the flexibility and creativity that will help us let go of pain and embrace our power to transform the problems we face into the strategies and solutions we need.

 

What is the human bottom line in your life and your work?

Have you established relationships where communication, collaboration, flexibility and creativity flow?  If not now,when?

    A lot of the things you mention is astonishingly legitimate and it makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This particular piece truly did turn the light on for me as far as this specific subject goes. Nonetheless at this time there is one factor I am not really too cozy with and while I attempt to reconcile that with the core theme of your issue, allow me see just what all the rest of your visitors have to say.Nicely done.
