Your thought to ponder for today: a slow read through THE SEER. Day 35. [all material from the book appears in italics]:
Me: All week I’ve been paying attention to the roles I play and what happens when I assume each role. I have these polar opposite sensations like I expand when I assume a role and then shrink when I assume another role. In some roles I feel like I know things and in other roles I feel as if I know nothing. For instance, this week I facilitated a workshop for young entrepreneurs and, in my role of facilitator, I was competent, clear, and certain of what I was bringing to the group. As I was leaving the workshop my parents called to check-in and I was suddenly 10 years old again, telling them of the fun day I just had. My language changed, my posture changed, and I engaged in an entirely different way in my role as “son.”
All week I’ve asked myself, “why?” Why the dramatic shift in experience from role to role? I’m a bit shocked to realize that I play many, many roles each day. In each role I want something and what I want is different depending upon the people I am with.
