When was the last time you caught yourself saying…

“Well, I don’t really have a choice”


“It is what it is”


“This is just the ways things have to be right now”

You may not realize it, but almost EVERYTHING in life is a choice. It’s just far easier to avoid taking responsibility for the situation by telling ourselves otherwise. As you listen today, consider the places in your life where you might want to make a different choice (even if you can’t see your way to making it yet).

Show Highlights:

  • Making choices and managing trade-offs (6:40)
  • How to avoid accumulating resentment towards others (8:10)
  • The NEGATIVE impact of choice that’s not easy to escape (11:15)
  • Putting the brakes on conditioned responses (14:45)
  • An easy way to use choice to free up more of your time (15:00)
  • How to set work boundaries…even when you think you can’t (15:20)

    What a beautiful tribute to the gift of agency, and an illumination of the fears (undesirable consequences, resistance, etc.) that keep us repeating unhealthy patterns. Keep telling the truth!

    This was a great topic. I say and hear, “I don’t have a choice” or “This is the way it is”. I am going to try and work on making a better choices and changing my approach on situation. I am excited to her the next podcast. Thank you!
