This means reducing the challenge to its real size.

And breaking it down in small chunks that can be handled.

Let’s take an example.

One person resists making payments on time.

You can overgeneralize it, discard the whole person, attack them, share it with everyone, gossip about it outside of the community.

Or you can keep this simple challenge contained to its real size which is a simple financial disagreement or lack of alignment.

You can talk about it only with the person concerned and not let the fire of disagreement spread to the whole community.

This can be applied to all sorts of challenges you might face like small fight or arguments.

Of course, there is always the option to bring this to the whole circle in sharing time.
