If you’re a puzzle, what pieces are missing?

Here are some thoughts I read this morning on “Life Beyond Code” by Rajesh Setty.

Enjoy.

You may have very little use of a single puzzle piece. I can’t argue with that. But let’s explore that a little further…

· Being likable alone may not be an asset but not being likable may be a liability

· Having long term relationships alone may not be an asset but not having them may be a liability.

· Good communication skills alone may not be an asset but not having good communication skills may be a liability.

I can go on but the point is really simple: any one puzzle piece may not be an asset.. but NOT having that puzzle piece can be a big liability (especially when you’re almost ready to complete the puzzle).

Every puzzle piece is important when viewed in conjunction with other puzzle pieces in the puzzle.

View a single puzzle piece independently and its easy to dismiss its importance. View the same puzzle piece in conjunction with other puzzle pieces and you will find the very same puzzle piece invaluable.

Really, it’s not the puzzle piece but your ability to see that puzzle piece in the right context that makes a world of difference.
