Between Stimulus and Response
There is a space between stimulus and response. In that momentary pause is the power to choose how we respond. Our capacity for freedom of choice in that response is the foundation for growth and success. I recognize that mornings are not everyone's thing. For me, the quiet of the early morning and getting out for a run or walk is a space in the day analogous to the momentary pause described above. It is when I reflect, plan, and set my direction for the day, and my response to current priorities and activities - accompanied by views like this morning's sunrise.
