What is the source of evil in our homes, our schools and our temples? While it is convenient to blame detractors for everything unsavory in our lives, the reality is much more ordinary and commonplace. My experience has been that negative energy increases when organization decreases. More precisely, if younger, less experienced members of the community are not given developmentally-appropriate challenges, duties and opportunities to prove themselves, they will lose motivation. Their morale will become low. This is true of families, classrooms, temples, businesses and entire cities alike. If left untreated, the lack of developmentally-appropriate challenges and opportunities will become the LARGEST contributor to problems of low performance, disloyalty and disruptive behavior. By the exact same token, if senior members of the group are spending 50% of their time doing tasks that younger, less experienced people should be doing, THEIR morale will also be low. In either case, the inability to optimize people's natural gifts and talents is an organizational problem that manifests as negative energy within the group.
As a teacher, a counselor and a priest, I know with absolute certainty, that it is necessary to match tasks to skill levels. The first step in assigning tasks is to define the desired outcome in measurable terms. Until you have defined exactly what you're aspiring to, it will be impossible to determine the sequence of work leading up to the goal.
