I am starting to see that this missing capacity: the capacity to see a process 1 , design a process, to have a strategy, is what’s missing to take me out of the one woman band existence.
- You can’t delegate unless you know what someone needs to do and how it fits into your process or overall strategy.
- You can’t have a staff… for the same reason. You can’t lead… because you don’t know where you are going.
- Not having this capacity means duplicate work, work that wasn’t needed was done, work that was needed wasn’t done…
Advising and guiding these two guys with the business is the ultimate activation process: you can’t guide them wrong, you can’t guide them myopically…
I don’t know about you, but I prefer to fail myself than to be the cause of another’s failure.
I also see that this capacity is missing for a lot of people.
When someone asks: what are you up to?
When someone asks: what are you up to? most people say an end result that you can hear they have no idea how to get there… I want to have a private plane… yeah? how are you going to get there?
So, I am going to map out the signs of lack of process for my students and clients…
This may be needed by most people… less than 1% of the populating has this capacity…
Holy cow, I thought I was the only one… lol. Really.
Honestly, I could not see it missing…
But, of course, when you have a missing capacity, a missing item, you can’t see it anywhere… this is what they call “it is missing that it is missing…”
One of those funky sentences I love to use.
What it feels like when a capacity starts working
Insight: when a capacity starts working, the experience is very similar to fog lifting. It gets fuzzy first, then patchy: between the now floating clouds you can see through… Eventually the fog disappears. It’s not at once.
The more you notice that you can see, that what is beyond the fog is somewhat visible, the more you accelerate the fog disappearing.
Better than sex… lol.
If you think you need this capacity activated because you see it’s missing… AND you have something going on that you need it for! then get it.
But beware: you need to need it for it to start working right away.
How do you know you need the capacity of process to be turned on?
How do you know you need it? You know if you are up to something that you can’t see your way through or not, right?
Building something, clearing something, organizing something, making peace with someone, negotiating something… increasing business… picking a path… finding a place to live… selecting a profession… You need it all the time, you just haven’t know that you are working without the capacity to do it well.
You may need to sell me on what you are going to use it for! Or I won’t activate it for you.
If you have had a bunch of capacities turned on and nothing worked: this may be the capacity you need to turn on the light at the end of the tunnel.
Can’t get organized? Cleaning your house is never done because you are distracted… you don’t find anything… papers everywhere? All signs of this capacity missing.
This is especially a good time, given that I am dealing with the same thing… We are in this together… together we’ll go farther.
