I would like pause today to consider the second step of the P.U.P.A.E.E. process which is to embed simple consistency into your dealings with others.
When we see the gain to ourselves, others and the environment or world we are inhabiting through this consistency, at that moment we can begin to engage with compassion, curiosity and trust.
Unless we can recognise that shared goal then someone will feel left out within the relationship in which you operate - be they personal or professional. When we feel disengaged from a process or challenge we are part of we cannot, with the best will in the world, be at our best. If we feel very shut out from what is happening we could begin to destroy it. This may not even be a conscious or wilful act. Often, however, it is.
So, today, choose a meeting, exchange or task and reflect on how well we understand all parties' roles, responsibilities and rewards.
Note the thoughts in your journal if you have one. If you do not have a journal make a note to get one.
