Too Insignificant — Fun with Philosophy

Here is a good take on that feeling of being small and insignificant. It seems like most people don’t like that feeling. I dunno.

It’s the small harm, small foul philosophy.

I guess most people think the opposite. They don’t think they will mess something up. On the other hand, they think they will do something great. So yeah, when you look at it that way, there is a limit on how great your greatness could be. It probably won’t be so great. It might end up being kind of good.

Or is it that most people feel that others expect greatness from them and they can’t live up to the expectation? Hmmmm maybe that’s it. If that’s the case, then yeah that’s not a good feeling. You gotta shake that feeling off.

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.
