Here’s a question we all ask: what helps me stay focused on achieving my goals? We’re constantly looking at things on the outside that can help us stay focused to make it to our goal. Seldom do you think that ultimately there is only one thing that can help you achieve what you want—that’s you! In this unique series, Kit Gupta shares his atypical thinking of looking at what’s the most important thing that helps us stay focused on our goals.

Finding Your Attitude Indicator

In flight dynamics an important concept is taught called “Attitude Indicator.” Also known by other names like Gyro Indicator, Attitude Director Indicator to name a few, this instrument is used to tell the pilot of the orientation of the aircraft with reference to the ground among other things. The pilot keeps a constant check on the Attitude Indicator during take-off, landing and throughout the flight. Obviously, I’ve over simplified the explanation and the science behind it. But my goal is to help you understand how there is an “Attitude Indicator” that we all have within us, which we all use or could use while we navigate through the journey of personal relationships, professional careers, and social lives.

Kit Gupta Author Speaker

Right from our childhood, our behavior with our friends, relatives, and everywhere we go is under constant scrutiny by our parents. Bad attitude is brought to our attention right away and we’re told to correct it. Good attitude is (generally) rewarded with praise among other things.

By adolescence most of us are capable of distinguishing between good and bad attitude. In school and college we pay close attention to our attitude as well as the attitude of others. By now we know how to distinguish between people with good and bad attitude. We tend to be friends with the ones who fall in our good attitude classification and often stay away from the one’s who we see to have a bad attitude. Later, we use our Attitude Indicator with most people in our professions, personal relationships, our friends and acquaintances.

So what is your Attitude Indicator? What does it look like? Obviously, it’s not like a physical gauge with numbers and needles like the one used in flight dynamics. The indicator you carry within you is intangible. Your Attitude Indicator is the feelings you experience. A good attitude indicates the feeling of positivity. You experience this when you or someone you’re in the presence of possesses good attitude. Whereas, a clear indicator of a bad attitude is the feeling of negativity.

Whether you choose to have a good or bad attitude in any domain of your life, it is not something that you decide based on the events that transpire in your life or the people that you’re around. Your choice is independent of the external circumstances. Without a doubt, your attitude is your choice and not something governed by your environment.

You and I all use our Attitude Indicator to learn, monitor and even transform our attitude as well as understand the attitude of others. Watch this in-depth video about attitude from the author. Click here

Think Philosophy Is Useless? Think Again

“I need to be practical and not philosophical in life if have to get things done. If the whole world becomes philosophical, all that we’ve achieved with science today would still be a dream for mankind. All I have to say is, philosophy is just B.S.! Cheers!”

The vice president of marketing raised his tall clear glass half-filled with German Pilsner and a Duchenne smile on his face. With a dreamy look and a pretentious smile on my face, I clang my glass, then glanced at the shimmering light on the soft ripples of the Elbe river flowing below the restaurant I was dining at with my coworkers in Hamburg.

For years I ruminated over what was said about philosophy that night, and I concluded that philosophy is not B.S. In fact, philosophy drives our lives. It may have gotten a negative connotation attached to it because of those who think that philosophers are just dreamers—those who ponder life while staring at the stars and the moon— unlike the observational, experimental, and inferential approach that science takes. Thought or reasoning—that’s also a meaning of philosophy.

Undoubtedly, we all participate in thought and reasoning in every domain and on every day of our lives. Think of the strategic placement of products in specific locations in shopping malls, retail outlets, and grocery stores. That’s philosophy. It’s based on the thoughts of shoppers (gender, age, etc.). The digital display of ads that pop up in your browser is philosophy based on what you search and click on. There are innumerable examples I could give to elucidate that you and I use philosophy in our relationships, professions, and social lives every day.
