Increasing Our Chances

increasing our chances

We are rarely alone. Rarely left to our own devices to complete a task, implement a project, create change. We are human and don’t live in a vacuum. We may feel alone, but it is unlikely we are. There are resources and influences all around us (the internet, the society we live in, and so on).

Many of us, work in teams and in organisations (big or small). We have goals or things we are wanting to achieve. The variety of these goals is endless. Assuming you, and your team, know what you are trying to achieving, here’s a key question to discuss each week:

How might we increase our chances of achieving this goal?

It’s quite a simple question, and yet, there is often power in simplicity. And there isn’t a ‘right’ answer to this question, the idea of asking it is to be generative. By listening to others and generating ideas ourselves, we open up to possibilities. And it can help us focus our efforts – individual efforts or collective ones.

And here’s the thing. You don’t need a team to do this. Ask a friend, a colleague, your child, your spouse – in person or online or on the phone. You could even use ChatGPT.

Give it a try. You might be surprised at the results.
