My friend referred me to Fred Kofman when he talked about leadership development. So I checked out his website this afternoon. He seems a very solid guy, holds a doctorate in economics from Berkeley, professor at MIT’s sloan, helping big companies such as GM, Microsoft to grow their leadership. But what interested me most is what he said in the book called ‘The Translucent Revolution’:
When you act in integrity, you are always willing to subordinate success to the alignment with the truth.
You have an unwavering commitment that manifests itself in your day to day actions.
Love, freedom, and truth are more important than anything else, and you will not subordinate those to the acquisition or the achievement of some secondary goal. I call that success beyond success.
I really like his value system. He seems value integrity a lot and he prefers to subordinate success to the alignment with the truth. He put ‘Love’, ‘Freedom’ and ‘Truth’ as the most important things compare with achievement of other secondary goals. It does require lots of guts to do so.
2010 is the beginning of the new decade, I believe everyone has his own goals, dreams and expectations. I wish all you dream comes true. And I encourage you to write down all your dream(I called it vision) in paper, maybe by the end of 2019, you can check back and see how did you do in this ten years. Put it in writing can be a very powerful way to clear out your vision. Since if you don’t know where you are going, you are far less likely to get there. If you don’t write it down, you might lost it somewhere.
The most important thing is, regardless what have you set for your goal, I wish you can put ‘Love’, ‘Freedom’ and ‘Truth’ on the first place, massage it with Integrity, after all, that’s the most important thing in life. Wish you get the success of success in your life.
