Sometimes your Thing looks like an eggbox.
I always say your Thing is the 'gift' that you wrap up and give out to people who need it. This gift might be a result, a feeling, a transformation, a product, a service, a widget, a gadget, and emotion, a turnaround, I don't know what it is but I know it's your Thing thing.
And sometimes that box you put it in might look more like an eggbox than a perfectly straight-sided giftbox.
You see it might be that your Thing does come in lots of smaller servings—like a half dozen eggs. But the gift is the same—it just might come in ready made portions :)
This is not to be confused with having more than one Thing (which you don't) but it's how you 'handle' the situation when right now your Thing is in lots of compartments—it's a bit of a jigsaw puzzle that needs all the pieces to work together.
But just like eggs you can blend all those pieces together to make an omelette if that's what someone wants (or just boil them one by one).
And it's OK to have an eggbox, as long as you're still clear that everything in your giftbox adds up to your Thing. You can have a one-egg omelette or a six-egg omelette... just make sure the pan is big enough with the latter!
What you offer to people is always the same—it's always your Thing. You might just have a few different ways of serving it, in terms of 'how' and also 'size'.
Your Thing is always what's inside the box. And if your box is eggbox shaped then it just means you have to let people know there's a range (free range?!) of ways to get your Thing from you.
And, yes, I know that 'they' say not to put all your eggs in one basket but in this case you do. You only have one Thing, so all your Thing does go in the same basket as it's the best basket you've got!
How eggsciting! :)
