Choice, as in meat for instance is ‘of very good quality’.
Making better choices, different choices, examining choices – has been my frequent pursuit for many years. Trying to better understand how I make them as well as trying to better understand how others make theirs …
I often write about choice, mostly and perhaps obviously, because I spend plenty of time thinking about choice, choice making, choices I’ve made and how I made them, choices ahead of me and how I plan … or not, to make choices today.
I’ve come to appreciate that choices I make: lose weight, shoot a lower golf score, conceive a fabulous marketing campaign or negotiate a coveted deal
There is a fine line one crosses many times. Over and back. Over and back … like a basketball infraction, whereby I put the weight back on, go in the hazard again or blow up again, blow that deal, miss that goal …
There is a way, albeit difficult. Self-training one I’ve been trying to more effectively implement.
Essentially I am reprogramming my non-conscious: to see me fitter, thinner, landing on the green, being more effective and successful – not as exceptions to some rule, but as conformist with who I am, what I am, and how I am doing.
My non-conscious, I’ve learned, takes things literally.
Which is not to say I can convince myself to be more fit and well exercised just by thinking it, but because I can support my efforts to do so by believing that it is normal and desirable for me to be that way.
This struggle continues. I want very choice choices.
