Hi Everyone, Carl Gould here your #70secondCEO, just over a minute of investment per day for a lifetime of results.
You do have blindspots. A blindspot is simply, based on what I’m looking at here, what am I missing? And the way it works in interpersonal dynamics and in behavioral dynamics is you’re moving towards things. And I gotta tell you I was very very upset at my parents because when I was a kid and I used to get caught doing all these things wrong, my parents used to say, “I have eyes in the back of my head.” And I used to go around like, “Really? I don’t.” And they say, “Well, you’re not a parent. When you become a parent, you get eyes in the back of your head.” And I remember when my kids were born, I’m like, “Ahh haha! You got me. You don’t actually have eyes in the back of your head. You just turned your head and you saw me and I just wasn’t very discreet about it.”
We think we get away with things but people are watching. So you do have blindspots, meaning, you are moving towards something and when you’re moving towards something, you are simultaneously moving away from something else. So you develop blindspots over time. We’re gonna deep dive into that, OK? And it’s not just understanding where the strengths and the blindspots are. We do wanna talk about what we do about it and when we’re talking about what to do about it, bear in mind throughout this entire series how you do what you do and why you are doing what you’re doing. That matters.
