Caution is the parent of security (Benjamin Franklin)
Do you love nothing better than to have a good think on things? Prefer reflection to taking action? Are you known for looking before you leap? Great at weighing the pros and cons before making a decision?
If so perhaps you’re a stop or know someone else who is a stop, one of the 8 Life Lenses®.
Stop lenses are reflective, thoughtful. Cogitate, meditate and contemplate are music to their ears. They like to take their time so they can do the necessary research and follow a thorough process, before making a decision and taking action. Need to know the procedure for something or which rules to follow? Check in with a stop lens. Need to make sure you’ve covered all the bases? Check in with a stop lens, they’ll show you bases you never knew existed.
The strength of a stop lens is their ability to be contemplative and thorough. Once a stop lens has made up their mind you can be sure the decision has been carefully considered and thought through.
One of my kids is a stop lens. The concept of wanting to be surprised is nowhere on his wish list because when something is sprung on a stop lens they simply don’t have the necessary time to think about it, to feel prepared.
Does the idea of carefully weighing the pros and cons of a new business procedure make your neurons dance with delight? Tend to want to read just one more report, one more research study, one more blog post before making a decision? If so then you may be a stop lens. If you’re groaning or I’ve already lost your attention because you just want to get on with things and keep moving then you’re likely the opposite of a stop lens, which is, you guessed it a go lens.
Life Lenses® is an interactive, self-assessment tool designed to identify the invisible lenses that you wear, the lenses that colour your perspective and shape how you see the world. Life Lenses® teaches you how to see yourself, understand others and makes communicating easier than you ever imagined it could be.
