Are You an Action Taker or a Reflector?
I remember that I used to leap into things – well I still do – and sometimes regretted being that action taker. On the whole though, I would say I’m happy with being one. On my journey towards business success, I have found taking action really useful but have been very frustrated by those who need time to reflect. In fact, I have had to stop working with people who reflect a lot because I find that they frustrate me ( I may well need them though in reality.) I’ve also spent quite a bit of money by diving into things and taking quick action.
One of our unconscious filters is meta programmes and one of these is whether you are an action taker or a reflector. Because these are very unconscious, you may not be aware of them and just notice the results. One of my aims in doing these prescriptions is to raise awareness of what is happening for you and whether it is useful or not.
Watch the video below and then reflect on which you are.
So here is the question ” When you come into a situation, do you take action or do you stop and reflect ?”
Or, are you somewhere in between?
Have a think about which you are and whether other people around you are different or not. Ask yourself whether you need people around you who take action or people who reflect before acting?
If you would like to learn more about how you work internally and work out what other people’s model of the world is, you might like to come on an NLP course and start to understand yourself and others – it’s totally life changing!
Until next week, have fun!
