You are the ultimate innovator. You constantly seek better ways to do everything. You can’t stop yourself! You contribute to the world with better processes and better systems. You generally operate with a high level of energy because that is a better way.
Sounds like you, doesn’t it?
This short video details the characteristics of your WHY, the challenges that
come with your WHY, and the solutions to those challenges.
Better Way Symbol
You are the ultimate innovator. You constantly seek better ways to do everything. You take virtually anything and want to improve it, make it better and share your improvement with the world. You take what has already been invented and improve upon that as well. You constantly ask yourself the question: "what if we tried this diferently? What if we did this another way? How can we make this better?" You contribute to the world with better processes, better systems and operate under the motto "Often pleased, never satisfed." You are excellent at associating which means taking from one industry or discipline and applying it to another-always with the goal of improving something.
The very strength of your WHY also presents a distinct challenge. Nothing is ever "right" because it can always be made "better" you have a hard time choosing what to eat in a restaurant because some other choice on the menu might be better than the one you are about to make. You never leave well enough alone and can frustrate others, especially those who go to great lengths to create systems that work and should not be messed with. As far as you're concerned everything can be made better.
Realize that what "better way" people are looking for is "good enough." What that means is that you will keep tinkering and improving until you reach the point where you are happy "enough" with it to stop. So the solution is to defne what "good enough" is so you have an endpoint to stop trying to improve it and can move on to something else. This will keep you out of things you shouldn't improve and focus on areas where you can make a bigger impact.
If your WHY is to Find a Better Way -you can be fun to be in a relationship with-and challenging to be in a relationship with! Fun in that you like to find better ways to do everything. Better, newer, different everything - from things you like to do, to restaurants you like, to events you attend - you are always looking for a better one. You like to experience "better"-meaning the newest restaurant, the best new car, the most fun nightclub, the best hotel. This can be fun for your significant other as they get to have these experiences as well but it can be exhausting as you are wanting more and more. You have lots of energy for fun and exciting and not too much energy for things you don't find fun. This can be a challenge for people that don't like change or like to do the same things a lot. Where you can run into more challenges is when it comes to making decisions. Since you are always looking for better-when is it good enough? This can cause stress for your significant other as you sort through the options to see what is the best when good enough is good enough to them!
You can be great to have on a team that is wanting to improve and get better. That is right up your alley - you see things that are not good enough and often have innovative solutions to improve them. It is almost like you have a file cabinet in your brain of better ways to do things that you have seen in many different areas and you can use one when you need it. You are great at associating which means you can take from one business and apply it to a different business. Although you are great at finding better ways- sometimes better ways are not needed. Sometimes the results are good enough and a better way isn't needed or wanted. This can cause an upset or almost become an irritant for some of the other Team members that think it is already working and doesn't need your tinkering and tweaking. So you are great to have when better is needed -not as great to have when better is not needed!
Better Way people typically are fun to have as parents as they constantly look for better ways to improve their child's life. You make a great coach for your child's Teams, helper for your child's science fair project and entertainer for your child's friends. You are always looking to innovate whenever your child has a problem or challenge so they come to you with their problems. You may run into challenges when what you see your child doing you know is not a better way- and you point it out to them. Kids make mistakes and that is how they grow but sometimes it is hard for you to understand that as you want to show them a better way. You always want to help them even if sometimes they just need to try it on their own.
Better Way people are wonderful to have on a Team if the focus of that Company is to make things better. For example they would be great working in Real Estate where the goal might be to take a property from run down and failing to updated and profitable. However they wouldn't be very good following proven and consistent accounting practices as a CPA or bookkeeper. You would be great in a think tank or brainstorming session as innovation comes naturally for you. Careers you might enjoy include: Residential Real Estate, Commercial Real
Estate, Mortgage Banking, Medicine, Business Owner, Engineer, Speaker, Author. Really anywhere that you can see something that isn't performing or failing and be able to improve it will be great for you!
