This morning I finished listening to what I would probably classify as one of my favourite podcast episodes of all time. The recommendation came from what might be considered an unlikely source who I encountered through the Akimbo workshop I’m doing. Superficially, we have very little in common. But what I am continually being reminded of is that it’s our shared values and principles that help us form meaningful connections, not the superficial stuff.
The episode was from a podcast called The Futur, a business and design education venture, Contagious Selling with Errol Gerson. So not exactly something you would think would immediately resonate with a Pharmacist. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the more that I am exposed to design thinking and marketing as a concept, the more I am intrigued. So many applications that we could benefit from applying to our industry.
I’m not going to get in to that today, because I have papers to write and I need to be disciplined. Instead, I’m going to end with a quote from Errol Gerson that has pretty much infiltrated my life at the moment (in a good way)…
If you change the way you look at things,
the things you look at will change.
