I was just reading this article here about applying the four agreements in project management. If you don’t know what the four agreements are, they’re best described here and are based on a great book of the same name by Jon Miguel Aruz. While it’s a great book, and I highly suggest it to anyone looking to live an Awesome way of life, explaining it would take a post of its own. Which I will do, all in due time
What is important is the fact that spiritual principles (which are basically good ways to live life in my opinion) are often applied in isolated parts of our lives. However, work, play relationships and everything else are ALL part of our existence and can and should be applied to every part of our existence (you know, to the degree possible)
What’s amazing is that it really works. I decided that I wanted to learn how to conduct business in a harmonious, peaceful fashion, in a way that’s based on relationships and win/win situations. Coming from a background in which I thought that was impossible, (and me knowing that nothing is ACTUALLY impossible) I decided that I needed to change that.
The wonderful result is that I’m learning from so many different sources in my life how to do that. A testament to the reality that when we open ourselves to possibilities, they form (and we form them) in our lives.
Funny thing is that the article that inspired this, I got from my current boss, who’s all about this stuff.
My process to open myself to new possibilities is to first decide that they are possible, and then when I see opportunities to realize them, I simply accept them into my life. Because they can and will appear.
By the way, if you’re interested in The Four Agreements, you can pick it up on Amazon, here
