What would you do if you couldn't fail?

What would you do if success was guaranteed? This is the question we were asking around our office the other day. It’s a powerful one. It’s essentially the adult version of asking kids “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

What are we saying when we answer this question? We are showing our priorities and needs. We are showing what we’d be willing to give up to get what we want. We are also revealing where our deepest vulnerabilities lie – what fears have kept us back from pursuing it.

This question is an eye-opening one to contemplate not just for individuals on a professional and personal level, but also for teams and organizations.  

If you stumbled upon a genie in a bottle or were visited by your fairy godmother, what wish would you ask for?
