"The Why of Life"

Why do we do what we do, or say what we say, or act in a certain way?

It is said that your:
Attitude and

Also known as your MAP is what determines how you lead your life, and interact with others..

"Consider those people you respect, as well as those lower on your list. Even when you disagree with parts of their MAP, you may agree with others, which means you can draw from many sources, but in the end it's your MAP and that makes it absolutely unique to you."
(Quoted from leadership turn)

So who's MAPs do you draw from? And have you figured out your mindset, attitude and philosophy in life yet?

Think of this year, how did you lead your life and will you do it differently next year?

i think i did figure out my MAP style .. its been working good with me now .. *exception: maybe 2 events went wrong this year - thats because i tried to change it ( someone suggested )*
maybe i drew my MAP mn my father ... all the calmness and seclusion*ness and go-with-the-flow*ness .. bas maybe i drew too much in .. i need some noise i think .. bas only a little .. about next year .. lol .. je ne sais pas .. maybe i'll stick with this one

i think my MAP changes through time..

but i always have the same morals, belief, and ambition ..

Delly said...

i think my MAP is changable!.. it depends on the ppl im dealing with.. i try to keep it positive but sometimes i cant help it.. ppl's mentality nowadays just makes me switch to negativity!

i need time to cope with ur new year's look :P

What an interesting blog!

And that's a new way of thinking about it. A MAP. Hmm..I know I can be a bit picky about, people I'd prefer to associate with. But, I'm taking steps to fine tune, that attitude. After all, each person has some wisdom, we can all learn from.

Thanks for this post. :)

I love love the new template...It felt like an old vogue cover!! about the MAP!I totally agree with delly.

Naseem said...

I read Robin Sharma books which always inspired my map...

I had set a map to myself 3yrs ago and I am still on it... and as you mentioned we learn or get inspiring maps from others as we go... and so further adjust my own map.

a wonderful topic published by you. keep blogging...
