Lose The Attitude of Control

Don’t try to steer the river.

I found that thought nugget searching for a final quote for my Yoga class.

It sort of goes along with a Yoga attitude of going with the flow. Calmness.

I don’t think it means not to try to make changes in yourself, your organization, your business.

The picture is one of great futility. You have taken on an attitude of control. But wisdom lies in understanding that you cannot control everything. Some things just happen. And you are left determining your best response.

Don’t let the attitude of control consume you. Begin with just trying to control yourself. That in itself is a huge task–and one most worthwhile.
