With a capital “T”. Cue the opening bars from the Jaws soundtrack. A sick feeling in your stomach kicks up, and you feel weak. Your heart pounds, your palms sweat, and your mind races. “What now?” you wonder from a confused place inside. Welcome to your brain and body on emotional contagion. You have literally “caught” the emotional upset of your partner. It’s not hard to do. We are actually programmed through several complex physiological systems, electrical, hormonal, and chemical, to literally pick up and take on each others negative emotional states.

Improving performance and productivity can be comparable to charting a ship’s course from Point A to Point B. Years ago, I served as a navigator’s assistant in the United States Navy. It was my job to help chart our ship’s course from one location to another, and make necessary course corrections during the journey to be sure we arrived at our destination as planned. At the end of my four-year Navy career, I realized the same navigational fundamentals we used for getting a ship from San Diego to the South China Sea were absolutely applicable for charting a personal or organizational course for success and achievement.

This is a trap, which unfortunately our culture supports. Observing the Ego is our gateway to awareness of and then release of Self.Embrace Your Blooming, and Divine, Right Timing
Someone once said, “There’s man’s time and there’s God’s time.” Man’s time is typically the forced time of trying to make things happen when WE want them to.
