A little understood aspect of integrity that screws up your integrity…
Integrity is between you and you. There are things you do with other people, but integrity is an inside job… if you don’t like what you did, if you don’t think you did a good job, it doesn’t matter what other people think… you are not happy with yourself.
And so far so good, most anyone can get that… but the story doesn’t end here.
Sometimes you do everything you said you would do, you do it on time, you did it complete and thorough, and yet you are not happy with yourself.
What is the reason?

I’ve read somewhere that we live in the age of attention. Everyone fights for your attention, and you have little or no control… unless you can control your attention.
How much control do you have over your attention?
Why is that important?
1. where attention goes, energy flows. But… as you’ll find out, not all attention is equal…
2. While you are “paying” attention to one thing, you are ignoring everything else.
Attention is a single pointed arrow… it is not very wide cone either.
Your cone of vision is already narrow… why? Because fear, wrong, desire all narrow it… automatically.
Fear, wrong, and desire also urges you to fix what seems to be threatening you… by avoiding it, or by doing something drastic to it.
What happens when you see something that seems to be threatening you? Essentially what happens is that you take that
I want this to be different than it is
I want to feel different than I am feeling
I want to be treated differently than I am being treated
I want to have more money
I want to do more interesting things
I want to have some skills
I want I want I want
What is underneath that wanting?
For one, a sky high desire number. Maybe even a desire trap. Coupled with a low, weak, tepid ambition number.
Holiday times are especially trapping… I can even feel it myself.
Desire, by its unrealistic nature, robs you of the energy to bring what you desire about.

Yesterday, still recovering from my strenuous weekend, lol, I watched TED talks for a few hours, all on Emotional Intelligence.
They were all profound, and nice, and useful… and yet.
Emotional intelligence, measurable in percentages, is the ability to be appropriate to life, to dance, to get stuff done, to rest when it is time to rest, and work when it is time to work, and to love, and appreciate, and say what you need to say, when it is appropriate.
To look at things from more than just one fixed point of view, to be able to empathize, have compassion, express instead of stuff it…
You see why emotionally intelligent people get ahead in life… they are easy to be around because they are OK with themselves.
What people, psychologists, writers, etc. teach is surface.
Much like telling you to cover up chicken shit and enjoy the praline… Praline is an expensive can
What’s the invisible dynamic that makes “It’s all in a day’s work” so transformative?
I have a different relationship to work than most people.
People at large want to do what they want to do, and don’t want to do what they don’t want to do. An attitude, a behavior, a maturity level of a 3-year old.
It is the level where most people got stuck, and now they are unhappy, because the world doesn’t respect their wishes, their rules, their “right”… so they are angry, pissed, reluctant, belligerent, feel slighted, lazy, stupid, clueless… whatever it takes to avoid playing life at life’s terms.
It’s easier to see it on misbehaving 6 year olds, than on adults… but it’s there.
