Replying to LO12195 --


I am new to this list, but think perhaps that you might try a concept of
"being present now at the job." Automatic pilot really means your people
are skipping either ahead or behind themselves in time. Being here now is
rather Budhist or Zen (depending on your view), can decrease errors while
increasing the spiritual expression of the person doing their work. "Time
altering" is a practice of consciousness and increases the awareness of
the individual and their relationship to their environment. Hope this is
