We are often “role occupants.”

IMG_4538“If we try to live our lives in separate compartments, one for doing and one for being, then for part of the time we are living a lie, ‘the truth is not in us.’

“It is hard for being and doing to weld into one when for part of your doing you have to act a part that is not totally ‘you.’ All of us in organizations are ‘role occupants,’ and few of us could claim there is a perfect match between us and our role. That is part of the problem with organizations and part of their seduction. They force us, or allow us, depending on your point of view, to play a part. It can be fun for a while. It can be damaging in the end.”Charles Handy

Wishing you grace, peace, and simple abundance.
