In general, we tend to be a society focused on doing. Setting goals and getting things done. Doing homework, doing work, going here and there. We sometimes forget the importance of who we are being while we are doing.
So, how are you being? Are you being happy? Stressed? Frustrated? What is your state as you go about doing your activities.
The importance of this is because we will remember events not by what we did but how we felt as we were doing.
Imagine we had 2 surgeons, both with the same education and knowledge and yet both with very different patient outcomes. What could be a possible explanation?
What if one was frustrated and tired with their work. They didn’t want to be there but they were doing their job to make a living. They treat their job as a job and clocked in and out.
What if the other was passionate about surgery and enjoyed helping people get better. They were invested in the lives of each and every one of their patients. They were willing to go the extra mile. Stay later and work extra if that was what their patient needed?
How would each person treat their patients differently? Which would you prefer during an operation?
Both people could be performing the same task with the same skill and yet who they are being makes a huge difference to the patient being operated on.
Who you are being makes a big difference to your family, friends and relationships as well.
Observe who you are being for one week. If you find out you don’t like a part of yourself, change who you are being.
Choose to be compassionate, happy, joyous or loving.
