I wish I were more detached in my life.
Angeles Arrien* defines Detachment as our capacity to deeply care from an objective place.
As a leader at work or a mother-wife at home, I deeply care, but too often from a subjective emotional place.
What’s preventing me from caring from an objective place?
MY HOT BUTTONS!!!
A HOT BUTTON is a point of sensitivity that represents a threat for the self-worth.
When a HOT BUTTON is triggered, we react ineffectively.
At Learning as Leadership http://learnaslead.com
we call it a PINCH® because it often starts with a physical sensation.
When my hot buttons are triggered, I sabotage my capacity to effectively communicate with others, to creatively use my brain and to simply enjoy life.
It’s my main commitment for 2013 to master my hot buttons and get rid of them.
Yes, I know, it sounds like a titanic task.
So don’t leave me alone and join the club! More is coming about the subject…
