I don’t know why. I do this all the time.
Be a life detective is what I have written about earlier. If I’m really analyzed by a professional then the outcome could be that I’m not confident enough in what I do.
In my first job in this industry I had to work very long hours, it was a tiny little company with only a few people. I also spent many “brain hours” outside the office to get myself mentally prepared. Perhaps I was scared to be unprepared at work. That became a habit.
When I have gained a bit more experience I enjoy predicting outcome, e.g. how my client will react, what was in his/her mind, why did he say this or that….etc. I become a detective. In recent years I analyzed myself.
One of my client gave me a nickname “Mr Agenda” meaning that I don’t like attending meeting without agenda. I’m sure many of you know of some companies that like holding endless meetings without agendas and following up actions. With agenda I know what to prepare for.
Like a detective I like writing up scripts to describe the crime. With the limited information and a bit of guess work I could make up the stories behind someone’s behavior, motives, movements….etc. 95% of the time I was wrong. This doesn’t matter as I’m doing a life long experiment, investigation, study or research that nobody can ever be assured of outcome. This has been a good practice mentally helping me to understand people around me which includes the one in the mirror and be prepared.
We are writing our own story and acting a role everyday. Are you prepared? Do you want to have a look at the scripts already written for you?
