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. (c) Chinmaya Mission (c) Chinmaya Mission

7 Intention @ work Often Ask to yourself: What am I doing?
Why am I doing? How am I doing? Human mind is like a parachute. It works better when it is open! 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? (c) Chinmaya Mission (c) Chinmaya Mission

8 Leading by living Whatever a great man does, that other men also imitate; whatever he sets up as the standard, that the world follows. Bhagavad-Gita 3.21 (c) Chinmaya Mission (c) Chinmaya Mission

9 How to recognize a leader?
In his presence, others feel an urge to follow him. Ready to accomplish some goal under his directions. A leader stimulates, motivates and inspires to follow. He does ordinary things extra-ordinarily. He is part of the group he leads and does not remote-control. He finds ideas by discussing with his group (c) Chinmaya Mission (c) Chinmaya Mission
