It’s Your Choice

Seth Godin shared these thoughts in his blog recently in a post named ‘Your Choice’.

You can read it directly from Seth here:

Your Choice
    Habits are a choice
    Giving is a choice
    Reactions are a choice
    Ideas are a choice
    Connections are a choice
    Reputation is a choice
    The work is a choice
    Words are a choice
    Leading is a choice

No one can be responsible for where or how we each begin. No one has the freedom to do anything or everything, and all choices bring consequences. What we choose to do next, though, how to spend our resources or attention or effort, this is what defines us.

Today, there is something that you need to choose. Will you choose the option that…

Redirects your bad habit into a new positive one?
Gives of your time or knowledge to someone else who will grow from your gift?
Responds with grace to the situation at hand?
Contributes to the pool of ideas that will initiate change for the better?
Builds connections with others within your world?
Enhances someone’s reputation, not tearing it down?
Requires extra work effort to create that extraordinary experience?
Says a kind or supportive word in place of stinging or destructive words to those you love?
Leads to a better ending?

What you choose today, starts to define your tomorrow.
Keep leading the Interstates Way!
