What Separates Us

You can change under duress, anyone can. We are human beings. We are built for adaptation in response to new stimuli.

But can you change by choice, when you are sailing in ideal conditions, no choppy water to steal your attention?

This is what separates us, the ability to see ahead, to calculate, to anticipate and to respond.

And so often we don’t, because “this” and “here” are both secure and comfortable. It is what we know and how we are known, after all.

Adaptation is our instinct. Development is our choice.
