Personal Philosophy of Buddha


Michael Gervais talked about a few people that had rock solid personal philosophies. Buddha was one person that was mentioned. Gervais said that Buddha’s philosophy had something to do with suffering, and the loving kindness that can come out of it.

Punching suffering in the mouth is how I have usually dealt with it. Maybe I can twist it around to say it was tough love for suffering. But, we both know that isn’t what I had in mind.

In the past few years, I have come around to at least hear the message that Buddha may have been trying to get across. It takes a heck of a lot of strength to see suffering the way he did. It probably has a lot to do with that Sean Connery quote from the Untouchables movie. “What are you prepared to do?”

I help people articulate what makes their service exciting, meaningful, and valuable to their stakeholders by identifying why they want to serve, what they are most proud of, what challenges they want to take on, and how they plan on showing results. I do that by researching issues, identifying clear positions, helping them align their positions with what their customers want, and managing work flow to deliver efficiently and effectively. In the future, I'd love to help companies improve on how they communicate with their customers.
