Fish tells what you really need to
on 26 February 2003
When I was introduced to the Fish philosophy it was through the book "Fish". I was at that time demotivated and lost belief in my abilities to do. I picked the book and struggled to allocate some time to read. I had this low self-esteem buzz that told me " what difference does it make to read one more book", "How would that book help?", "You have already read many other books, why this one would be the one". Many negative thoughts were ruling my mind telling me one thing this book will not do you even one step forward. The break through came when I just started reading the book. I started to read few pages every day. When I got more into the story, I started to cite situation and relate to my life. Relating needed not any effort, humans have to much similarities and hence their problems intersect in a way.
When you realize that you are not the only person who has self-esteem problems and you are not the only person who lost direction over years, you feel a little content. You are not in no where-land any more. You feel that you are passing through a hard time that many people have passed through before. The best part comes when you are dragged into the solution. The solution comes sneaking into your mind. Even your rejecting and negative brain cannot stop the solution from crawling in. All of a sudden, you will find lamp lighting up the dark negative parts. The rest of the house cleaning comes by continuing the story.
What is different about fish? I asked my self and simply the answer is that fish tells you exactly the How and Why, of having a happy day at work regardless of all the circumstances. Everybody tells you "You need to be a proactive person" no one told you how in a simple way! and above all no else before told why! And if they did, they tell you to much sophisticated issues that sometimes puts you down rather than push you up.
Fish is simply, a push forward, that tells simple issues that has a very high positive impact on your performance.
