You have a problem if you are quick at connecting the dots.
There is a downside to every strength.
If you are great at connecting the dots, then it’s amazing that you can:
⚪ create ideas out of nothing
⚪ troubleshoot problems
⚪ make quick decisions
⚪ learn new things easily
As a personal example – I know I could be quite poor in active listening.
The problem is that midway through someone else’s sentence, I think I know what the person is saying.
I connect the dots.
Then, I stop listening and start thinking of my response.
More often than not, I am wrong with what was about to be said.
And that leads to conflict situations and then – poor relationships.
Stop connecting the dots in all contexts. It’s not always a strength.
– Hari from the Gang

What are your expectation gaps?
🔵 What do you expect to see at the Taj Mahal?
🔵 What starting salary you expect a junior developer should have?
🔵 How much do you expect to pay for 1-day parking at a mall?
Whether we consciously know it – we all have expectation gaps!
Boss vs. Leader
The difference between a boss and a true leader in such a simple and beautiful sentence:
“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast endless sea.”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
