One tells you what’s going on. Does its job accurately and consistently. But it does nothing more than that- it’s job of telling you what’s up.

The other has a job too, which is a bit more proactive. It sees what’s happening, then takes control of the situation and changes it as it sees fit.
Which one are you? Listen in today to find out.

  1. Love the metaphor. I’d say for most of my life I’ve been a thermometer, it had it’s advantages in that you could pass responsibility to an outside circumstance, it’s not my fault thinking. The BIG flaw is nothing really happened, especially when it came to the results I wanted. If you’re not doing anything you can’t complain that things aren’t going the way you want, although I did try and do that.

    Now I’m in the process of upgrading myself to being a thermostat, I want to make things happen. If something isn’t going the way I want I can adjust the temperature. I can observe and then course correct until I get what I want.

    You have to get to the point where you can see that the thermometer thinking is broken. Improving yourself is the only way to do that, learning new ideas, listening to yourself and trusting that voice deep inside. Everything you need is inside you, the rest you can find.

    Great work Dre. Your work is one of the springboards that helped me see my thinking is flawed. That I can take control of my life, that we’re all meant to take control of our lives.
