"It is way better than the last one," Aahaana said.
Aahaana took a new job a few months back.
She had a challenging time in her past organisation; this was a significant break.
Me: How are things at work?
Aa: Better than the last one.
Me: Let me repeat, how is your current job?
Aa: Some difficulties, but I am dealing well with them by using the learnings from my past company.
Me: What I wish to understand is how is your current job helping you achieve your goals?
Aa: As I said, it is better than the last one.
Me: Have you ever given your vehicle for servicing?
Aa (surprised): Yes!
Me: What is your expectation when it comes back? Should it be just running better than yesterday?
Aa: No. There are objective points around which it has to be accessed and evaluated. It has to be ready for the future.
Me: Let's come back to your current role. Did you join this company to run away from your past or create your future?
Aa: For the future.
Me: What is your definition of future?
Aahaana is reworking on her goals.
If past if the only reference you have, you are missing on the possibilities of your future.
