March – 2016 “ From the Editor’s Desk ”
YOU are alone: The mediator is one who dives deep into aloneness, knowing that we are born alone, we will be dying alone, and deep down we are living alone. So why not experience what this aloneness is? It is our very nature, our very being. – Osho
Free Yourself: The search ends with the realization that there is no such thing as enlightenment. By searching, you want to be free from the self, but whatever you are doing to free yourself from the self is the self. – U.G.. Krishnamurti
You are DIVINE: The Divine is present in everyone, in all beings, in everything. Like space it is every where, all pervading, all powerful, all knowing. The Divine is the principle of Life, the inner light of consciousness, and pure bliss-our very own Self. – Mata Amritanandamayi
Birth & death: There is nothing as fearful as death, and there is no suffering as great as birth. Be free from the fear of both birth and death, by doing away with attachment to the body. – MAHAVIRA, Mulachara
It’s opportunity: The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative and reflective people, who know to see a problem as an opportunity. Always go with your passions. Never ask yourself if it’s realistic or not. – Deepak Chopra
Engenders rigidity: The pursuit of a fault-less ideal, creates strong mental beliefs about the “best way” to do things. Leaders get hooked to doing things the “right” way and stick to the “safe” and proven method. This often also blocks them from listening to alternative points of view and suggestions.
Fosters risk aversion: The ability to take calculated risks is an important skill for effective leaders and the fear of making mistakes often makes perfectionists severely risk-averse. Taking risks logically means they are prepared, that things might go wrong, something perfectionists would rather avoid. This makes them naturally avoid projects that have a chance of failure, and rarely allows them to make effective decisions in scenarios that involve accepting failure as a possible consequence.
Kills productivity: In a world where time is money, leaders don’t always have the luxury of poring over every detail till they get it just right. The need to produce perfection can adversely affect productivity not only because it takes longer to finish every task, but also because it takes more mental effort to even get started. The increased workload as well as angst created in the quest for perfection can take the joy out of almost anything.
