My story
Fortunately, my generation (gen X) still had the benefit of childhood boredom. I spent a lot of my time on the family farm growing up. Mostly bored but I always made the best of it. What choice did I have right? The majority of this time was spent inside my own mind and imagination. I pondered everything; how it worked, who made it, how it came to be, how it used to be done, etc. I was an obsessive thinker. According to my parents, I didn't talk until I was almost four. That year for Christmas they got me a talking doll, in hopes, it would “get me talking.” While still in shock and appalled, I took it to the tree stump outside and proceeded to gut it open to find out what was making the sound of these annoying phrases (of which I recall none of them.) What I found was a teeny-tiny record player. I was not only fascinated, I wanted to know who built this shrunken device, and how they made a plastic disk make a sound. I was so drawn to this tiny device that I had forgotten why I was at the tree stump in the first place. I did, apparently for which I also do not recall, told my mother "I know how to talk. I just don't have anything to say." 

Each one of us has our stories, from childhood through early adulthood and up to right at this moment. We all agree that the randomness in our lives, like being in the right place at the right time, has led to where we are today. Both the good and the bad, our paths are unique to us. What we don't generally think about is how if we lived the exact same path again, the randomness of ourselves and those around us, we could be somewhere completely different. Think about it. Think about that one time you just spoke up because you had this uncontrollable urge to say what was on your mind, and then how that impacted your path. Or, when you didn't speak up, or when someone else did that touched you deeply enough it somehow affected where you are today. We tend to lose sight completely with what should humble us daily. So as you choose to learn more about what I have to share, I ask you one thing, leave your predispositions at the door just like a pair of muddy winter boots.  

My own path took me into engineering, then into chemical engineering. Humbly, the only reason I went into engineering is that my friend in high school told me I should. I figured, “sure why not?” My path could easily have been different at any moment during those years.  

While in my second year of college, I took a psychology series as one of my electives. I didn't clearly realize then, but I loved these classes and it came easily to me. Easy enough I flew through them to focus on the stuff that was trying to kill me, such as thermodynamics, physics, and organic chemistry. Since then I have certainly surpassed Malcolm Gladwell's “ The 10,000-hour rule ” of studying personality psychology and all its related fields. Going through personal and professional pain drove me further into the study, trying to understand. During my research for examples from history to explain using my lens of the Ultimate Human Dilemma, there is one that resonates with my own story. That would be the story of Louis Pasteur who became obsessed with solving the problem that killed three of his five children (typhoid). I can relate to his career obsession with understanding how things worked that caused so much pain. My own career obsession has been explaining why people and teams struggle and companies ultimately find themselves circling the drain waters of relevance. 

I certainly cannot save lives like Louis Pasteur has, but I can help anyone who both needs and wants help to better themselves personally and professionally. Pasteur was able to see the problem that caused literal sickness and death to my giving you the ability to see the source of the problems that cause a different kind of sickness.
