You’ve got more to learn, more room to grow. We all do.
What does that mean for you? Do you know how to define and describe it? Are you willing to?
Yes? That’s outstanding.
Now, a harder question:
Do you know the patterns you have artfully created and that you dutifully follow to keep you from getting after it?
Of course you do, it’s just that naming it as a pattern – admitting that you have been seduced by the status quo – creates the discomfort that precedes all pattern interruptions.
All living systems are learning systems. If you keep learning, growing, developing you get to keep living. Not surviving but living.
