109- Outcomes as a line

When envisioning a desired #outcome , I find it helpful to think of it as a line rather than a point.

A point is small, precise, and unforgiving. It implies that nothing but that specific desired outcome is acceptable.

A line, however, contains an infinite number of points that can represent the endless ways in which the desired outcome can manifest.

It is the difference between limiting yourself to a single specific recipe rather than the infinite possibilities of what a healthy and tasty meal could be.

107- Embodied curiosity

When beginners try to turn on a longboard, they only use their head and eyes – as if looking at the desired destination alone was enough to get them to turn. The opposite tends to happen as they lose balance and fall off the board.

A better strategy is to turn with the shoulders. This strategy creates a fully embodied response, where the hips, legs, and ankles follow.

In the context of personal #growth , awareness of the desired #outcome alone doesn’t lead to change. A deeper and more embodied sense of curiosity is necessary to revisit our beliefs so that the rest can follow.

In the wise words of Gandhi: Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.”
