Being on one creates polarity. It distinguishes between that which relates to and serves my current mission and that which does not.
This polarity is very useful. It enables me to prioritise accurately. We all prioritise all the time. Usually along the lines of who shouts the loudest or who moans the most incessantly. Prioritising on this basis aggravates the problem since it condones the behaviour that secured the attention.
This disappears with polarity. Not because others don’t shout and moan, but because it doesn’t matter that they do. If they want priority, they must do the work to understand your mission first, and then create compelling value in support of that mission.
Most of our challenges result from the haze of an indefinite, haphazard existence.
The solution is simple. Create a mission worth getting on.
