Mark Rovner's Prescription for Change When Change is Hard: Appeal to Identity

Mark Rovner at WOC10:10

Who are you?

Depending on the moment, you might answer in 100 different ways. For me, that could include: husband, dad, scuba fanatic, Buddhist, fundraiser, crazy person, dog lover, etc…

More significantly, evoke one of my many “selves” and you might get a completely different set of responses and actions. When I am really cranky and hard to work with, my business partner Alia will often incant “Buddha Mark” to remind me to bring up my more open, generous and calm self. It’s amazing how often it works. Just ask her.
