How often have you been to a doctor,taken your car to a garage,called a plumber,builder etc and had an idea at the beginning what the problem(and perhaps the solution)is.
The real "expert" is usually the one who takes the time to listen & gather information from you.
In other words they treat you like you are the expert on you & your problem.
How much of an expert is the person who has to call themselves an expert?
As Lord Sugar put it, "An entrepeneur is not something you call is how others refer to you."

Attachment & Defence

The more attached I am to something/an idea or someone the more inclined I am to defend it from a perceived threat.
The more threats I perceive & defensive I become the more likely I am to lose the object/idea/person I was attached to.
The work then is to let go of attachment & stop defending - simple, right?!

I came to the conclusion a few years ago that even if I could give each of my children 500% more of everything(time,energy,attention etc) it would still not be enough.They are bottomless pits as far as these demands are concerned.That's ok- it's their job!
My job is to do the best I can & happily accept the shortfall between demand & capability/capacity so that they can accept that in me & in themselves too....good enough is good enough!
