Your Name 2.0

Your Name 2.0

By Rajesh Setty on Wed 06 Jan 2010, 12:10 AM – 7 Comments

When you meet someone even after a while, they are seeing your 2.0 version.

You meet them again after a while and they again will see your 2.0 version.

With reasonable time between meetings, you change. You evolve and typically version 2.0 is better than version 1.0

What would you feel if someone does not notice that you are v2.0 and starts treating you as if you are still v1.0?

What would you feel if someone makes assessments using the criteria they used to make assessments of your previous version?

What would you feel if they didn’t notice the “significant” change from your previous version to current version?

Not very good I am presuming.

Now lets turn the tables around.

How are you treating people when you meet them after a while?

Do you see them as version 2.0 or do you see them same as before?

How do you think they are feeling?

Something to think about.

Once again you have provided me with a new thought and perspective for the day. Tomorrow my intent will be to attempt to see the V2.0 in people I have met before. Brilliant.

It depends…I believe you must give an opportunity to anyone to show what v2.0 represent and then to decide. In Bulgaria, we have one proverb – “The wolf may change his skin, but his nature – never.” Very often it`s same for us – humans.

Thanks Steven.

Pierre, nice addition here and I agree with you – some people don’t change.

We tend to revert to the last known emotional state we experience with anyone.

People that are uncool tend to stay uncool… unless they change the crowd they’re running around with.

Good point Dave. Generally change is resisted by people. OK, let me correct it – Generally people want people around them to change while they continue to do what they are doing.

Over a period of time, they “evolve” based on the interaction with the world. Sometimes even they can’t see how they have evolved as they are usually comparing themselves to yesterday. In that short-term, nothing major happens so they assume that they are the same.

More on a future post.

Yes, you have it: people want their salaries to change for the better, and that’s about it.

Looking forward to that post.

ps: You ever consider having threaded comments?

Rajesh Setty  on January 6th, 2010


Yes, threaded comments are in the to do list. Hopefully I will get to them soon.

Thank you.
