My Daily Thoughts


Build Capabilities

Success means at least you are finding full potential to who you are in terms of your intelligence, your capability and competence: you are finding full expression to who you are. This is important.
Jaggi Vasudev

A capability is anything you do that produces something that someone finds valuable.

Every capability has inputs, processes, and outputs

To live a successful life you need to create capabilities where the output is something that others value.

Capabilities are on a spectrum from skills to products.

On the one side of the scale, a skill is a capability where you are putting your skill and time together to create a capability that others will find valuable. The problem is you can only sell this capability once. Time is a non-renewable resource.

On the other end of the spectrum is products where you have created a self-sustaining product that others find valuable.

A musician has a skill. A musician who can create a song in a format that someone can buy has a capability.

Most capabilities fall somewhere in-between where some of your time is required but the rest of the capability is wrapped up in the process and structure you have created.

Once you have a capability focus on improving the process to make the capability more valuable to you. Focus on replacing what you do with process and structure.
