We do not achieve anything worthwhile just by ourselves. Life is a team work, and human being is a social being.
Recently I have been pondering what is the determining factor on how well we work with each other?
We are unique human beings with different strengths and qualities. Yet if we are given X and Y, why is the end result sometime 0,8, sometimes 1 and sometime more than one i.e. 1,2? I am talking about super productivity and what is behind that.
If our neutral state is one, what could be our enthusiastic, open, kind and cooperative state? I would say that would be 1,2. Then again when we are a reluctant, tired and selfish we our input in a group regresses to 0,8.
What factors of our own input are in our own control?
- We cannot choose our feelings, we can choose how to respond to them. By choosing how to respond to emotions we can set our emotional state which is far more than just the whims of single emotions
- We cannot choose our circumstances, however we can choose our attitude
- We may not always decide who we are with, yet we can decide to be present and mindful
Great results are always the result of your best input: you can choose if your attunement , i.e. do you bring something to the table or take something from it.
