Do you have a dream? I bet you do, me either. What about those that surround you, do they have their dreams too? No doubt. Who’s responsible for their dream to come true?
You are responsible for their dream fulfillment.
Matthew Kelly poses an interesting question in his book The Dream Manager:
“Isn’t one of the primary responsibilities of all relationships to help each other fulfill our dreams?”
I say “Yes”, it is.
- That is why I want to Become A Superhero.
- That is why I believe that Experience Is The Most Valuable Product.
In every interaction I reflect on what I do and try to see the other party as a customer, I try to constantly reflect on myself – “Am I offering this customer the best experience?”.
Today I am better than yesterday
The result was amazing:
- My kids get their daddy more often and with full attention. Their biggest wish is having their parents to spend more time with them. Not just be but interact.
- My wife gets more attention. Less transactions, more meaningful conversations, and more positive emotions. We both noticed our interactions become transactional lately. We wished to seize our passion and our love back, just like it was 10 years ago. And we seize it back now.
- My managers and co-workers … I realized I made few serious mistakes. Now I know what to improve.
I think that today I am a better person than yesterday. I help making other people make their dream come true, and they help me to make mine to come true in response.
