It’s important to identify your Jester. Sometimes, it’s obvious, like social media, or alcohol, or porn. Sometimes, it’s less obvious, as with YHC, it’s a sense that slacking has been earned. “I posted this morning, so I deserve a double cheeseburger at lunch. I worked in the yard for three hours today, so another beer at dinner isn’t going to hurt me.” For F3 brother Clothespin, it was a sense that he didn’t belong — he wasn’t good enough or strong enough and people were judging him. The key is that your Jester is a liar. It wants you to fail, and it will coax you into believing that you should. Not just overcoming your Jester but learning to recognize it is key. But not just for yourself. When you are EHing that next FNG, identifying their Jester will help them see why they need to find themselves in the gloom at your next post. Maybe ease them into the F3 lingo, though.
