The Leading Question: What would you do if no one was watching? When there is a speed limit on the road, there is a well-considered reason for it. The worst way to find out the purpose of a low-speed limit is to go beyond it. I mean, get to 100 on a 60km/hr. patch and you may just find yourself calling Quicky Rescue and Recovery. They say experience is the best teacher but accidents can be fatal, you may not live long enough to get your epiphany. So, here, you have to rely on established rules and wisdom. If life is a journey, does it have all these speed limits, and are they all well-considered?
Because of interdependence or other reasons, we have to consider how other people will respond to our actions. There are things you do because you want to be affiliated with certain people. For instance; suits or hairstyles you wear to be presentable. Yes, picking the right dress code is beneficial to your networking. However, not all decisions made under the “supervision” of others will be as favorable. Sometimes we unnecessarily limit ourselves and carry the burden of other people’s “perspective”. In many cases, the result is you will consider what all the other people think without giving proper consideration to what you think. At the same time, we may not even know what other people really think. This is why it is important to clearly know your own position. What would you do if no one was watching?
The answer to this question may help you know who and what you truly value.
