God is in the details (Ludwig Mies van der Rohe)
Do you love to create systems? Do you notice details that other miss? Do you have an uncanny ability to focus? Do you not like to leave things undone?
If so, perhaps you’re a carrot or know someone else who is a carrot, one of the 8 Life Lenses®.
Carrots are good finishers, they don’t like loose ends. Carrots relax by organizing things and creating systems. Look in a carrot’s desk and you’re likely to find a place of systems. Look at their filing system and it’s likely to have a detailed plan behind it. Able to peek into their closet and you’re apt to see …. yes, a system – dress pants go here, casual pants there, long sleeve shirts here…. you get the idea.
Imagine a carrot growing in the ground. It doesn’t have a wide view but rather a detailed focus view. That’s its strength.
I grew up with a carrot mother, in fact to this day she still alphabetizes her spices.
Does that notion make you go, ‘hmmmm, I can see the merit in that’? Or does it make you shudder? If the latter, my guess is you’re not a carrot. Stay tuned for the carrot’s opposite, the mountain, in the next blog.
