13.  Equilibrium

Does your inner work have any effect on dealing with the pressures of work?

I have to say that one of the most important things I’ve learned well from the years of inner work is a sense of perspective. I don’t get ruffled easily. Things tend to go pretty smoothly around me.

I received some cute feedback on this once from one of my partners who asked what I thought of an associate who was working for us. I told him, "I can work with him." To which my partner replied, "That’s not enough information for me. You could work with a monkey."
