Today’s Theme: Disappoint & Offend

Here is the prompt posted for Questers on December 6 courtesy of Michael Bungay-Stanier

Who are you willing to disappoint or offend or upset or abandon… for the sake of the Great Work that’s calling you for your best 2015?

What follows is a personal answer to the question asked above.

This post is also an adventure for me in the spoken word. If you’d rather listen than read scroll down to the bottom to hear the rest of the story.

Q: Who am I willing to disappoint or offend or upset or abandon… for the sake of the Great Work that’s calling me for my best 2015?

  • I am willing to disappoint those who seek to further agendas by manipulating and dishonoring heartfelt service to others.
  • I am willing to offend those who hold that academics, status in society or uninformed opinion is as valuable as experience.
  • I am willing to upset those who support the status quo that any solution for a challenge is for someone else to figure out.
  • I am willing to abandon those who begin projects with an intent to quit before evidence of a tangible result ever shows up.

While the Michael Bungay-Stanier prompt explores outward willingness to leave others by the wayside, I can’t be true to my answers until the prompt takes an inward turn…

Who am I willing to be disappointed or offended or upset or abandoned by… for the sake of this Great Work that’s calling me for my best 2015?

That’s a question I will likely re-visit again with the original prompt later in 2015.
