The design of a milk carton isn’t going to change the flavour of the milk. Except that it does.
People can’t judge the milk until they drink it, but they can judge the milk carton in the supermarket.
People’s experience starts with the carton, and they then want the experience to continue as they expect it to.
So they experience the milk within the frame of reference of the carton.
Which is why a carton will cause people to pay more for milk that comes from the same factory.
What’s your ‘carton’? How are people judging you before they’ve tried you?
Or do you want to be right?
Recently I was in a meeting with my management team.
One isn’t better than the other.
We all have different personas; the child, the warrior, the sage etc.
Is a feeling.
Entrepreneurs and doctors are similar in many ways.
Recently, I had an experience that led to a decision that on the outside might have seemed rapid and reckless.
Recently I met someone who inspired me to my very core; where they’ve come from, what they believe in, what they are doing, who they are, the integrity and courage they live with, the way they are living, the choices they are making, the trust they choose to live with…
They say the man who is going to live to 150 has already been born.
