On Balance 4

Life is not a stable process. Our ability to recover is our greatest quality. (Moshe Feldenkrais)

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“I lost balance.”

“Recovery after losing balance is one of the most important life skills.

You can’t practice recovery without losing balance.

Losing balance is a gift. 

Every time you lose balance is an opportunity to practice recovery. Always make the most of it.”


Fragments from imaginary dialogues

What is the Win-Win principle?

It has a double meaning.

On one hand, it means ‘I win only if you win too’. 

You can metaphorically think of it as (another facet of) Balance. 

If both of us win, we’re in Balance.
If I win and you lose or have no gain, or the other way around, we’re out of Balance. 

It means striving to make every single interaction mutually beneficial.

On the other hand, it means you win regardless of the outcome.

You win if you succeed.
You win if you fail. Even more so in this case – that’s where the gems are found [<link, medium read].
