Mastery

I was in the 4th or 5th grade when I realized that lashing out at my siblings when they interrupted my solitude didn’t get me more quiet time; it only got me in trouble. So I resolved to do a better job of controlling my emotions. I frequently failed.

It took me a while to understand that instead of repressing my emotions, I needed to recognize what I was reacting to and choose a rational response that incorporated my feelings and reason. And that mastery is a life long endeavor…

“…every emotion offers information about you that is important. When you ignore your emotions, you ignore that information.” ~ Gary Kukav, The Heart of the Soul

Inhale Realization, Exhale Repression…

Mission Accomplished

There can be unintended consequences to any action. But a well thought out strategy that takes into account the possible reactions to every action taken to achieve a clear mission, is likely to succeed.

And then there is action for the sake of doing something…

“For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” ~ Sir Isaac Newton

Inhale Reaction, Exhale Distraction…
Inhale Strategy, Exhale Distraction…

Laws of Motion

The inability of the leader to see beyond the immediately satisfying but negative action to the long-term consequences could create chaos for the organization, to include the leader.

Our Turn

My friend with the huge heart posted yet another story about an innocent bystander being shot by a cop and asked “Is anyone else concerned here?”

I didn’t know about the incident because I’ve started to carefully curate what I ingest from the news after realizing I just couldn’t digest another black or brown body mistreated, mutilated… murdered…

Is this how it happens? Each new disgusting display of depravity drags us deeper into the depths of despair, until we can no longer respond, no longer react…no longer resist…?

Is this how the forces of evil take over?
