Tension building up?

There is a natural cycle of tension building up, then it breaks and there is a release of pressure.  We see it in thunder, in cooking and in relationships.

When it happens in the atmosphere, the release is sudden.  Everything cools down quickly and returns to normal.

As a leader, we can learn from this. When there is tension in the atmosphere, as soon as it breaks, get back to a normal routine. Don’t hold grudges, overdo a triumph, or push on farther than is necessary.  It’s better to pardon, forgive and let everyone enjoy that liberating feeling of being released from pressure.  – Shar McBee
