Performance with Detachment
  • A detached performer identifies with
    accomplishment and not with what is
    accomplished.

44
  • In this (Detached performance) there is no loss
    of effort, nor is there any harm (contrary
    result). Even a little performance protects one
    from great fear.

The essence of Karma Yoga
You can choose your action. You cannot choose the
result of action. You can choose your
reaction. May you not be without action.
45
Intention _at_ work
Human mind is like a parachute. It works better
when it is open!
Often Ask to yourself What am I doing? Why am I
doing? How am I doing?
Is it related to what I would like to achieve?
Can I delegate this to Someone?
Can I do something differently without
disturbing the Output?
