Contrasting 5

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“How can I keep this impulse in check?”

“You’re faced with a choice. The choice between doing (action) and not-doing (non-action). 

Ask yourself:

What Value does not-doing represent?
What Identity does not-doing represent?

Make it perfectly clear in your mind.

Then contrast doing and not-doing against one another, and ask yourself:

Which do I value more?

“Hard to do it in the moment.”

“You need to create space [<link; medium read] for it by slowing down, or pausing.

And you need to first do it backwards – reflecting at your choice after the fact. Once clarity is gained, this makes it easier to do it forwards at the next choice-point.”
