Remember the story of Steve getting all lost in the city despite all his positive attitude and good effort in following the map?
Steve was first time in Dallas and as a good driver, he never failed to get a map. However, this map is that of Boston but wrongly printed ‘Dallas’. Steve drove around the city but couldn’t find his hotel. He was getting frustrated, but he quickly calmed down himself and reminded himself, ‘Be positive! Keep looking, keep looking!’. After 5 hours, he was still wandering on the street. Again, he pepped up himself, ‘Steve, you can do it! Follow the map and try harder!’
What he never realized is he had a wrong map!
This week, let’s remember to pause and check our mental map when we are not getting the results as we expected.
