I heard a comment from Mark Silver, who runs Heart of Business. I have great hopes to take one of his longer courses, but right now my husband is planning on a move. So I listen in whenever he has free calls. Someone asked about the fact that they always seem to have “just enough.”
First, Mark talked about how miraculous that was that they had “just enough.” Then he re-framed that. Clearly, just enough wasn’t quite enough or they wouldn’t be uncomfortable, so the question became, were you really asking for what you wanted and needed.? It was a very interesting thought. Am I asking for what I really need or am I settling for what I can get by on? Maybe all I have to do is ask for more, and really feel that need.
