Our journey together has finally brought us to the 3rd Vital Question: what actions are you taking? Now you have all three of the Vital Questions. Let’s review what we’ve learned and touch on the third question now:
WHERE ARE YOU PUTTING YOUR FOCUS?
Are you focusing on problems or on outcomes? Creators focus on outcomes, tap into the power of purpose and passion, choose their response to the “stuff of life,” and take Baby Step actions in creating their envisioned outcomes.
HOW ARE YOU RELATING?
How are you relating to others, your experience, and to yourself? Are you producing or perpetuating drama — through the roles and dynamics of the Dreaded Drama Triangle (DDT) — or are you empowering others and yourself to be more resourceful, resilient, and innovative by developing your capacity as a Creator, Challenger, and Coach — the TED* antidote roles and dynamics to the DDT?
WHAT ACTIONS ARE YOU TAKING?
This unit puts creating outcomes and making choices and decisions into action by asking the 3rd Vital Question: What actions are you taking? Are you merely reacting to the problems of the day or are you taking generative, Baby Step actions — including the solving of problems — in service to the outcomes you and the organization want to create?
Vision; Current Reality (both what Supports and what Inhibits); and Baby Steps make up Dynamic Tension as the process by which you create outcomes.
