Mental Clarity-Why its important for SAP consultants and how to achieve – Skill #3
This blog is about Clarity... No suspense further…
How SAP consultants need clarity and why it’s most important for him?
"Why am I feeling this way?"
I can confidently say just by seeing any SAP customers, clients, partners or end users with whom it would be tremendously fun or irritating to work with.
The one with clarity on their requirement and communicating the same to others clearly stands out. Imagine you working with a less clarity person on business process, or any requirements who change his requirement then and there. As a consultant, you lose your time, money and Respect (I like this one)...
So how to develop this clarity?
I am learning it and let me be very honest with you. It’s not easy. It is like to draw a straight line and you are given only 1 dot and requested to find the end dot by yourself to make one perfect straight line. Sometimes the customer will also say that you are paid to find the other dot for connection. I agree to this partially
It’s Ok if you don’t have the clarity of a full picture when you start, but you need to know at least what result you want overall. A bigger picture.
ASK SMALL QUESTIONS.
- What is the 1 important requirement that customer would get a benefit?
- Which is the easiest way to collect requirements?
- How to quick fix for the problem before to develop a big report?
- What is the one task that would take me closer to project closure?
SEE IF THIS IS DONE ALREADY?
When I have to travel to South Boston last week I took help of GPS. That took me to the destination and the places that came in between I have no clue and awareness. Here you have a destination clear.
Speak to people if you need clarity, create a false image and even post dumb questions and don’t hesitate to learn their advice.
IDENTIFY WHAT STOPS THE CLARITY
What is your dominant thought that is your foundational thought? You can never get any closer to clarity if it’s based on
But it’s inevitable to not to have this. I am just saying that it will be there but once you acknowledge these and move on to start asking small questions you can get closer to the reality that is clarity.
PRACTISE MINDSCULPTURE TECHNIQUE
Mind sculpture is a technique that involves total but still imaginary, sensory immersion. It requires practitioners to pretend that they’re actually engaged in the action, not just seeing, but hearing, tasting, smelling and touching.
In mind sculpture, people imagine the movement of their muscles and rise and fall of their emotions.
Just closing your eyes your brain has no idea where it is and is sending perfect messages to the body. Now using all the sensory the brain starts realizing as it’s true and starts making the complex relations to easy.
Just try dedicating 1 min morning before getting up from bed. The entire day you can get clarity on your actions.

THE TECHNIQUE THAT I USE MOST OF THE TIME
Writing it down. Consultants face many challenging questions posted daily to them and it’s necessary for us to understand the depth of the question to address holistically.
By writing the non-clarity into a paper I make a habit getting close to my clarity.
