Daily Dose for the Mind

on

Professionals have their talents and areas of expertise. If a client tries to control and monitor every detail, the professional cannot work at full capacity and feels inhibited. If you want the best result, watch with interest but know when to back off. A veteran doctor, lawyer, or accountant won’t necessarily provide better service than the passionate young professional who has been in the field only a few years. The amount of attention you get is often more important than the professional’s illustrious career history. After mastering eighteen levels of kung fu, you can hurt someone with the flick of a finger. But if you go on to master all thirty-six levels, you choose to retreat when the weak foolishly come to fight.

Are you moving up? Are you doing well? Then see whether you are succeeding at the expense of others, or along with others. If you shove others aside on the way to success, then you will be pulled under once the tide changes.”

Excerpt From: Haemin Sunim. “The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down: How to Be Calm and Mindful in a Fast-Paced World”.
