Life Rules: Show up. Pay attention. Tell the truth. Don’t be attached to the results. Angeles Arrien
Angeles Arrien is of Basque descent and a professor of anthropology, a teacher of the spiritual life, an author and a general wise woman. Oh, yes, and she’s a fantastic (in every sense of the word) storyteller. I got to know her and her work two decades ago when I was making the long journey from one way of life to another. It was a timely encounter.
Show up: be there, be prepared, be on time.
Pay attention: sense what’s going on around you, get the information you need, be an involved listener.
Tell the Truth: leadership requires authenticity, we are called to be authentically who we are, express your truth to the best of your ability in the circumstances.
Don’t be attached to the results: that’s not in your control, while you might want a certain outcome, use what you get as the grist for the next phase of life.
