The hinterland of choice

human motivation is actually based on a timescale that is long, sometimes even longer than our lifetime*
Dan Ariely

You can’t find a good reason until you know what you’re trying to accomplish.**
Seth Godin

Choice is not only out there in variety and opportunity.

Choice is also inside me, grown through daily practice.

When I neglect this, and something happens, I react.

When I grow enough, and something happens, I respond.

When I grow more, and something happens, I launch.

I’ve found that a good place to begin is at the beginning of the day: exploring humility (wonder within), gratitude (wonder without) and faithfulness (wonder in practice).
