Why We Do What We Do

 …and Don’t Do What We Could


  • Because we have nothing more compelling to do. Find something better to do and your behaviour changes instantly.
  • Because of the rewards or consequences that motivate us. Change both enough, until you change.
  • Because of the particular personal operating system we use. Does yours need an upgrade?
  • Because of our environments. The physical universe never lies.
  • Because of the people with whom we spend our time. They say you become most like the 5 people you spend the most time with.
  • Because of what we know or don’t know. What don’t you know that you would be wise to know?
  • Because our values are seeking to be fully expressed. Values are the activities and interests that we find most engaging.
  • Because of what we believe to be true. Truth is evolving very, very quickly. Keep up.
  • Because of the roles that we have chosen or we’ve been given. Roles either expand or contract you.
  • Because of what inspires us. Sources of inspiration can be discovered and chosen.
  • Because of our upbringing and culture. We are born into a culture that often defines what we know to do.
  • Because of our experiences. What we have experienced either opens us up or closes us down. Or both.
  • Because of the ideas that determine our thinking. New ideas lead to change.
  • Because of the strength of our personal foundation. With a strong foundation, we have more energy to create.
  • Because of the level of integrity at which we operate. The higher the integrity, the more easily life occurs.
  • Because of the encouragement we get and our support structures. We need these to be our best..
  • Because of how big we are able to think. What’s possible can be the floor, not the ceiling.
  • Because of our level of openness and responsiveness. Arrogance and resistance limit behaviour.
  • Because of our collection of skills. The more you can do, the more you can do.

Time to evolve? Let’s talk.
