Circle of Trust:

Eyes to the side are animals that hide.

Eyes to the front, are animals that hunt.

We are hunters – and we hunt in a very complex way. Like a pack of wolves, but without fangs and claws. If the hunter is working on the prize, chucking a spear, it is best to have someone watching his six – because we can’t see our six, our blind spots, our jesters. We can only see from 9:00 to 12:00 to 3:00.  SO, our BESTIE is there to help us – to keep an eye on our six – and we keep an eye on theirs.  It’s good to have a bestie!

Building from the Q source on “shield lock” – A ‘bestie’ in this sense requires 3P.

Proximity: geographically close.  SO, put your arm around your buddy and let them know you are there!

Purpose: Commonality in mission, values, virtues.  Accelerating at the same rate…. Maybe at the same stage in life. Like our work out, we are all doing different things – different jobs, hobbies, families, etc – but we have common purpose & values.

Periodic: we need to check in our bestie, regularly.  Don’t wait for your gas tank to get empty before stopping for gas – be proactive, be prepared, be intentional and spend regular time with your bestie. It takes an investment of time to know your buddy – and know when and where and how you can keep on eye on each other’s six.  Pain is finite – so the more we parcel it out and share burdens – the easier it is to bare.
