Chaos is running wild, but there is a focus on what we need to accomplish with the company. Everyone's eyes are on the goal. The only question is priorities! Which to do items comes first? Can I trust my partner to do his or her task while I pay attention to the crisis must I own? Will we remember our values? Can we stay together?
The good news is that so far we are holding up well. We are pushing, hard. We are increasingly raising our voices, but it is not personal. We are trying to let go of what someone needs to do and keep our eyes on the tasks within our hands.
We knew this was not going to be easy. Launching a company never is. Trying to get things started with the parameters we have been given makes things even more difficult than normal. We have not always helped ourselves. It seems that we as a group reflect more of life than we might care to admit. Life is not easy, at least for anyone I know. Evil strikes without warning or remorse. Distractions come at us from every corner. It is far too easy to find one's self caught up in a emotional corner, commitment conundrum, or demand paradox. Remembering, holding onto, and acting on one's priorities is problematic in the chaos!
A key to this, at least in my life, is letting go of what is another's role. At work, there are subject matter experts. The best thing I can do for them is support, cheer, and nurture. Not trying to do their job is important! In life, God's promise is to take on Evil and administer justice. The words are quite plain: “He'll make everyone pay for what they've done: fury for his foes, just deserts for his enemies. even the far-off islands will get paid off in full.” (Isaiah 59.18) Divinity also promises to be with us.
Today's priority, especially in the moment at hand, is to be connected with God. I can exercise compassion and freely give mercy.
