Leaders pause to find freedom

Response or reaction — it’s a choice

In 2016, I was driving through Toronto with our RV trailer in tow. A driver changed lanes taking my safe space from in front of me. Unfortunately, the traffic in front of her stopped suddenly as she changed lanes. I had no hope of stopping in time. Thankfully no-one was hurt, but my truck was a write-off.

“Between stimulus and response there is a space”

In leadership & life

By the time you reach this point in the post, you might be trying to wrap your head around the choice which lies between stimulus and response. I was going to make this a leadership lesson, but truly it’s about more than leadership. It’s about how you choose to live your life … always.
