Cogs and Wheels

I often over hear conversations in the office, at coaching forums, networking or even chatting with my friends and there is a common parlance that comes up on a regular basis. You hear someone describing themselves and it often starts with I AM, followed rapidly by JUST and then what they do(insert job title!). "Ohhhhh Im just an architect, Im just a developer,......... a builder, a doctor, a freelancer, a writer......" There are not only 3 issues with this which I will cover shortly, but it points to something that I have been thinking about now for a while.

Raindrop and sunbeams

Sometimes life is blurry and the rain clouds our view as it rolls relentlessly down the pane. We all have days where we wake up and it's raining and as we pull back the curtains all we see first is the raindrops rolling down the window pane. The condensation has fogged on the inside and the rain outside is so heavy that nothing is that clear, in the foreground or the background.

That nagging and pervasively annoying feeling - perhaps its an idea thats just shaping itself and not quite there or a problem you’re trying to solve? Its a low lying, under the skin kind of feeling. Often it can have a couple of different effects on you; it can make you feel completely frozen by it - you can’t move, you can’t think straight, you don’t function properly, and weirdly you don’t even think you know what is that you want to happen.
