What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I suddenly realized how fortunate I had been in my life and how little of the really important stuff was about the money.
We all get born, it’s not our fault. As Phillip Larkin wrote: ‘They fuck you up, your mum and dad.’
That said, we are a lot more than just genetics. Every opportunity, or lack of opportunity, makes us unique beings with unique abilities. We rapidly establish ourselves in our ever-expanding worlds, from the warmth and comfort of the womb to the tomb. In that intervening time, we earn a reputation for reliability, humour, spitefulness, cruelty or kindness, for many different qualities. This is down to us, our nurture, nature and environment, a result of trillions of permutations.
We build our personal aura, our brand, which can be exciting or dull or a crazy mixture of experiences. It is the very essence of what makes us us.
It is easier than ever to change our personal profile, a few mouse clicks and we are done—perfect, shiny and airbrushed. This is not it. In fact, it’s nowhere close to what we are considering here. This Personal Profile is the nitty-gritty, bitter reality, that is each one of us. Warts and all.
Our personal base encompasses a wide range of contacts, which includes family, friends, associates, and people on social media from around the world who follow us or who we follow.
Our aim is to be the truest version of ourselves that we can be, not trying to be all things to all people. Your goal is to be or become, the very best version of you.
Our accomplishments will define us. But remember, whether you are an A student or you struggle academically, every action, large or small, defines us. Now is a good time to reflect on all your attainments and achievements in school, college, university and work, and also in life. You may have helped a neighbour, set up a charity or volunteered your time. Whatever it is, we need to include it in our Personal Profile.
Summarise your personal profile. Think in terms of keywords, ambitions, skills, special qualities, etc.
All actions involve some negotiation skills, so putting things in a negative light is not well received in today’s world. Mistakes are necessary in life. Nobody likes making mistakes, but they can be used to our advantage.
A mistake in any situation can be dangerous and put us in a vulnerable position, possibly even life-threatening. Mistakes can also take us to uncharted territories, places we would never have seen, people that we would never have met. This increases our knowledge, helps us to evaluate what is important and what is not, forces us to experiment and adapt, become more creative. Motorcycling is a passion for me. Yes, it’s dangerous, but so is getting born. Mistakes on a bike can be costly in terms of damage to life and limb—and motorcycle. But a wrong turn can make a tedious journey suddenly more interesting. As a motorcyclist once said, ‘If you get bored, just get a puncture.’
It is easy to scapegoat someone when they make errors, which can be more dangerous than the failure itself. Our ISO system is not for perfectionists. Perfectionism is not the goal. If this system results in improvements, whether small or monumental, that’s great. But there are no real constants and every system, our bodies, our planet, our solar system, are in a constant state of flux.
The ISO:2020 system is a way to identify mistakes and adopt them as a process of development and growth. Remember, nothing is truly fixed. All are part of a process of evolution. Once we appreciate this process we can relax and possibly make fewer ‘schoolboy’ errors.
Hopefully, this general guideline profile has established what we are dealing with, the harsh reality. There are no rights and there are no wrongs. Every profile is unique and yours will be different from everyone else’s.
Let’s get started.
