Balance Thinking and Action
You become more personally powerful when you balance your external action with internal reflection and contemplation. Action without thought and replenishment (which is far, far more common in corporate life and western culture) leads to:
- Frenzied activity
- Controlling efforts to impose your own will
- Pay later decisions (ones that require a great deal of rework, hidden costs, etc.)
- And ultimately…
- Frantic exhaustion
- Sense that our souls are fragmented
When you take a more balanced approach, you achieve greater capacity that enables:
- Your best decisions
- Resilience to handle challenges and setbacks
