From my years of experience, the issue of lust did not affect the management of WITs directly. At least, the team leaders were not of that tendency; not to my knowledge.
By the time the team leader and members return to their workstations after the sessions with me, they are so filled with things to do, that deviating from the objective of pursuing of their quality goal has already becomes a remote possibility. The task and activties listed out during the session will become a preoccupation for the next two or three weeks, which is usually on top of their existing workload.
Well let us not let our guards down. The seventh sin is as determined as ever. Lerking in the dark. Lust, could creep in and effect on some members or leaders theoretically. Sin afterall is sin. When you least expect it, it pounces on you. Be on your guard.
And leaders are also target of Satan’s snare.
Again refering to the Good Book does help me. The Bible speaks of lust in several passages.
Exodus 20:14, 17 , “Do not commit adultery. . . Do not covet your neighbor’s house. Do not covet your neighbor’s wife, male or female servant, ox or donkey, or anything else your neighbor owns,” or
Matthew 5:28, “But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust in his eye has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
Job 31:11-12 brings up the problems associated with lust quite directly: “For lust is a shameful sin, a crime that should be punished. It is a devastating fire that destroys to hell. It would wipe out everything I own.”
The latest most colorful story unfolding is the Tiger Woods rumour, which I read over the internet. When you follow the rumour mills, you will inevitable come across the writeup on him going for ‘sex theraphy’, just so that he can manage his Lust.
I always think that golf is a game which demands the full concentration of the player; so what went wry with the best golf player of the century? Some may even suggest that his sin made him better at golf or what?
In WITs, we have a fundamental assumption that ‘bad things leads to big bad things.’ We use this problem solving assumption as in the Cause Relations Diagram, or Cause-and-Effect Diagram, sin cannot have helped him in winnng the games. So in WITs, our line of thinking is to defend yourself against this sin. If you apply it to the Tiger case, you will come to a conclusion that, when he manage this sin (assumming, he had) he will come off a better person and be even better!
Guard against the temptation of Lust and you can improve yourself.
