The situation we most often face is that there are many different ways in which we might spend our time, energy and/or resources (now and/or in the future). We need to ask questions such as: 1. What am I particularly qualified to do, which perhaps others are not qualified to do? 2. What particular opportunity is present to me here and now, which calls for my response now? 3. What present opportunities am I NOT qualified to respond to in a helpful way? 4. Are other people present who are now more qualified to respond to present opportunities than I am? 5. Am I over-committed now and unable to respond responsibly to any more committments now or in the near future? 6. Am I taking prudent care of my own health and resources so that I can respond responsibly in the future? 7. Are domineering people working to coerce me to respond in ways which are not prudent, wise, and/or helpful -- except perhaps to "The Domination System". 8. Am I the victim of delusions of-grander-callings than I am qualified to respond to? 9. Am I getting sucked into collusive games of mutual self deception? (c) 2005 by Paul A.
