In the littlest and seemingly most inconsequential ways, we make choices every moment of every day which, added together, go a particular direction.
Do we face a new technology and choose to entertain a story of how we “don’t do new technology well” or approach it like a fascinated 18yr old?
Do we see a homeless person and choose a thought pattern of sadness or simply send out a silent blessing?
Do we come upon a personal or financial growth choice and go the fear-based, play-safe route or the the expansive, risky-business route?
The late Alvin Toffler, great futurist and author of Future Shock, The Third Wave, and Powershift said “You’ve got to think about big things while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction.”
What little nexus points can you find in your day to be conscious of the direction you’re choosing?
“I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor”
—Oliver Wendell Holmes
