This spectrum shown above is a good tool to help one understand where they personally are.
Personally, back in September 2006, I was firmly in the red area. I was shocked into action from the red end of the spectrum through to the light green within the span of a few months, then finally over a longer time period to the dark green end.
Although I have experienced a real paradigm shift in behaviours, beliefs and personal reality, sometimes I loose that optimism which comes with green, and go to a much darker place. Those who follow this blog regularly would have observed this in my writing from time to time. It happens to us all I think, but then I snap out of it with some self reflection or meditation.
I believe that it isn’t until we measure something objectively, that we can truly improve upon our performance.
Anyway, that is where I think I am on the scale, where do you think you are? You don’t have to share if you don’t want to, but it would be great if people self reflect a little, and draw a line in the sand so to speak. While you are at it, have a think about behaviours you could be doing better or start to move towards the greener end of the scale.
Join in, the waters fine. The more the merrier, I say. What would be really interesting would be if we did this again in six months time. Who is up for the challenge?
