Awareness, assumptions, and actions -- Why you do what you do? | Steve Piscitelli | TEDxFSCJ
It is often said what we think we become, but professor and author Steve Piscitelli proposes a formula (E + R = O) for becoming what we do.
In every situation we have the choice of how to act: We can ‘run and numb’, react or respond
E + R = O
Event + React = Outcome OR Event + Respond = Outcome
To respond instead of react we need time to reflect and observe
RIA = Reflect In Action – reacting ‘on the hoof’ versus
ROA = Reflect On Action – give yourself time to observe /watch your ‘game film’/get feedback from mentors etc
Each and every one of us can ask the question :
Is what I am doing validating me or betraying me ?
