Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 75 – It’s About We

Five evaluators got a chance to evaluate my target speech for a Toastmaster’s club’s Evaluation Contest over lunch. Also, my wife didn’t have to cook supper tonight.

people putting puzzle togetherOne of the hardest lessons in life is to learn that “It’s not all about Me.”

How many people contributed to Google’s success?

Does Wikipedia work without thousands of volunteers?

Does FedEx get a package delivered with only one person?

Those organizations succeed in finding solutions, not excuses. They’ve done it with large networks of people working together.

When we’re focused on assigning blame for our problems, we’re saying “It’s about Me.” But when we’re focused on how can we solve a problem together, we’re saying “It’s about We.”

Tomorrow, listen to yourself as you talk to your spouse, friends and co-workers. Do you talk about solving a problem together, or finding blame?

It’s not about Me, it’s about We.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
