Practice 2: Carry Your Own Weather

There’s a natural tendency to blame the external world for what happens to and between people. Yet, one of the most important freedoms individuals have is the ability to stop in moments of high emotions and choose, in effect, to carry their own weather. People who learn this practice become proactive instead of reactive when faced with relationship and other challenges.

Practice 5: See the Tree, Not Just the Seedling

It’s human nature to see things as they are, not as what they can become. Such limiting beliefs, ultimately can become reality. Seeing potential in others isn’t about ignoring the gaps or areas for improvement someone has. Those who see the tree, not just the seedling invest the time and attention to help mentor and empower others to grow into their full potential.

Practice 6: Avoid the Pinball Syndrome

The allure of the urgent over the important is a hallmark of modern life. In the rush to move through to-do lists and tasks, relationships often pay the price. But by learning to avoid the pinball syndrome, to step back and account for what really matters, individuals can balance the needs of the moment with the people around them.

Practice 7: Think We Not Me

Those who learn to think we, not me, approach relationships with a wider view. They exchange transitory, short-term wins for long term success. Following this practice can move one from dependence or independence, to interdependence. Choosing to combine one’s talents and capabilities with others can build a larger and more profound win—one that strengthens relationships along the way.
