Slowing down our responses and getting better results

Yes, I know this sounds counter-intuitive. After all, we’ve spent decades speeding things up and celebrating he who gets there first.

Yet, the reality is that we’re not in a fit state to go fast – especially at this time – and neither is this our best contribution.

Instead, that’s what we’ve created information technology to do brilliantly.

Who could even begin to match the 0.57 seconds to generate 302,000 results that the Google search engine just served me?

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
