Context is the perspective that you hold your experience. Context is your way of being. We always have a context. It is not possible to not have a context.

Our context may be high or low. “I need to pee.” is a context.” I wish I knew how to help her.” is a context. “We have to keep our commitment to 700 million people in the NATO alliance.” is another context.

Consider what is the context that you are holding right now. Is it a high context or a low context? It is possible to be conscious of what context you are presently holding and to modify it. Choosing a higher context will generally provide a better result.

People who hold a high context are people that others will follow. The person who holds the highest context leads.

Be present to your context. Is it working for you?
