Seed: Difference

A client said it the other day. “I want to make a difference.” I heard the phrase in a way I’d never heard it before. After the session, I looked it up.

The OED says that the word different comes from Latin roots which mean to have opposite bearings.

Why is it that so many of us want to make a difference? There’s a subtle judgment here that bears examination. If making a difference means to have opposite bearings, doesn’t that mean that we want to change whatever we want to make a difference to?

Think of it. Start with what is. Decide what you think about it. If you like what is, fine, but if you want to make a difference, you’re talking about having opposite bearings.

Could it be that the easiest way to make a difference is by reorienting your own thoughts about your subject?

Be content,
