The Freedom of Choice
Posted by pdittman on December 26th, 2021 in Agile & Coaching Notes

I’m never really one for year-end lists and I promise, this isn’t one of those. Though while reading one of those lists that I got triggered with an ah-ha moment. It was on a best advice list that I saw a quote from philosopher Alan Watts: “You are under no obligation to be the same person you were five minutes ago.”  – wow, that resonated…

As a coach, we perspective to try to bring new awareness to our clients – with the intention of bring them to a place of choice – enabling them to decide to do something different with the new awareness or new knowledge which has been created.

The quote brings the perspective of time. This moment is different than the last moment – we are under no obligation to be the same as we were. Flipping that around – no obligation creates the notion of choice – we can make a choice to explore something new in the next moment. That is the gift of choice we have – in every moment. Not to say it’s easy, and not to say we can always do that, but even recognizing that we have that freedom of choice, can open new possibilities.

What will that choice bring for you?
