Issue 130 - 01 | AIWATT and the Empty Boat

By Marshall Goldsmith
Published June 10, 2015 11:00 a.m.
“I have a first principle for becoming the person you want to be. Follow it and it will dramatically shrink your daily volume of stress, conflict, unpleasant debate, and wasted time. It is phrased in the form of a question you should be asking yourself in any situation where you must choose to either engage or 'let it go.' Am I willing, at this time, to make the investment required to make a positive difference on this topic? It’s a question that pops into my head so often each day that I’ve turned the first five words into an acronym, AIWATT (it rhymes with “say what”). Like the physician’s principle, 'First, do no harm,' it doesn’t require you to do anything, merely avoid doing something foolish.”

About Marshall Goldsmith | Marshall Goldsmith has been recognized as one of the 15 most influential business thinkers in the world by The Times (London) and Forbes. He is the million-selling author of many books, including What Got You Here Won’t Get You There and Mojo. His new book is Triggers.
