    The middle part takes the longest.

    …if life were fair.

  3. Mike says:

    Or dumb luck. But the waiting is annoying.

    (JH – Go to my blog and look at post 689. There’s a tshirt you may be interested in.)

    This is exactly what our CEO teaches to executives and business leaders every day. You have expressed it simply, yet powerfully–truly a gift!

    I think you’re missing a couple of “& Lots” in there.

  6. Oddtwang says:

    Marcus: Depends how ambitious you are :)

  7. Sal says:

    Too right. Sigh.

  8. Frank says:

    I thought that Fate meant that you *don’t* have any decision, because it is already all written and so forth…

    ooo I like this one a lot! so true

  13. Mike says:

    Not really. I mean, I get the point, but expressing it as a venn diagram doesn’t make any sense.

  15. Robin says:

    This very true. It takes a lot of work, to make a change in one’s self.

  16. Alex says:

    Not true. I want to slave away making pizzas for $7 an hour for the rest of my life. Wasn’t hard to get there.
    But I agree with Mike, there must have been a better way to express this. The way it’s shown here, it seems to mean that there might be a lot of work in the job you have and in the job you want, which is “always true sometimes.”
    I think it would have been better executed by having a vector from point A to point B, with the rest hopefully inferred by JH and our intelligent readers here.

    This was exactly what I needed to see today.
    You have perfect timing. <3

  19. Arwen says:

    this is one of my favorites yet.

  20. Damianne says:

    This is also the reason I hate the trustfund douche that will never work a day in his life that hangs around the outskirts of my social circle.

  21. I hate to pick, but I’m with Mike. The intersection could also be labeled “you are where you want to be”. I strive to stay in that middle area all the time. Granted my goals change, but if I don’t want to be where I am today, I’ll never get where I’m going.

  22. dor says:

    this doesn’t seem like something that’s expressed well in sets.

    Pure WOW stuff this is

  25. Keck says:

    Erm, “where you are” shouldn’t be a whole circle, should it? I was thinking it should be a single point. Also, the ‘lots of work’ should be labeling the part of ‘where you want to be’ that isn’t shared by ‘where you are’, right?

    THAT’S IT!

    Sigh… just put a picture of my life right next to that pic.

    This doesn’t make sense. Why bother using a Venn diagram here?

    Just write “getting to where you want to be takes loads of work.” Obvious, not very profound, and not in graph form.

  30. Sick and tired of lies says:

    How can you even say such a thing?????
    How can any damn person on this fricking earth say fate is equal to descisions.

    does a child born with no hands decided to be born that way?
    did a father decide before suddenly dying of an heart attack??

    hundreds of people follow ur blog.. how can u even spread such false optimism.. this aint optimism.. this is dreaming..
    dreams sound sweet.. reality bites.

    Agreed. The use of a Venn diagram is nonsense here, obfuscating a very simple point with pseudo-math. Very Liberal Arts Major stuff.

  39. Anonymous Geek says:

    I agree with Mike and Alex etc.

    This idea is very poorly expressed as a Venn diagram.

  40. Michael says:

    This diagram is completely wrong: The intersection of where you are and where you want to be is “No work at all.” In other words: if you are where you want to be, there’s no work (improvement) to be done. (And I agree with those who say that a Venn diagram is a poor way to represent this concept.)

  41. Классно написано, только тема не совсем ясна. Что именно автор хотел этим сказать? Напишите. Может, я просто не догнал?

  42. This is wonderful. As a relationship coach, I use a similar illustration to show what transition looks like. When you’re between the two identities of “Who I was” and “Who I am becoming”, you can essentially get stuck in the ‘nowhere’ of it all. Brilliant! I’m going to steal this and put it on my Facebook page, but I’ll link it to you with credit, my friend.
