In a few weeks I am going to retire.
Here is the only message that I have for all my friends out there.
Internet is flooded with the self proclaimed gurus talking about empathy.
They say, empathy will make you great business leader.
Here is the definition of the empathy:
“the ability to understand and share the feelings of another”
Let me help you.
If you do not know how to cross the street how is empathy going to help you to help other to cross the street ?
Coming to the subject.
Clarity versus empathy...
If you do not have anything to share and teach, understanding the feelings of others will not help you or them.
The best way to help them is to be the best you you can be.
Clarity of your vision, clarity of your goals and clarity of the strategy how to get there is the best way you can help yourself and all around you.
Closest to the empathy that I had working for multinationals is expression:
“ It is with mixed emotions” :)
In the air plane they tell you to put your oxygen mask before helping others.
Be great yourself before helping other to be great.
Love yourself and be the best you can be. There is no other chance.
I am going to play chess now . I miss it so much.
