Get lost in the dance, that is.
Sometimes, it’s the best thing to do. Every now and then, we need to let ourselves be carried by the music and energy of the moment. But if we take this too far, our dancing will lack polish and start looking sloppy.
On the other side of the spectrum, there’s consciously keep tabs on our technique. This is also important, but too much of that becomes a problem as well. We’ll tense up, get too bogged down with how we look to others, and miss the fun.
When our tango isn’t working, often it’s because we’ve either “gotten too lost” or we’re “too mentally awake.” The challenge is knowing when to pull ourselves back from either extreme, instead of doubling down on the very thing that’s making us unhappy.
