One Single Moment

That’s all it takes. One Single Moment. That’s all it takes to change the course of history. To change YOUR course of history. To change THE path.

Pink Floyd, Yet Another Movie, has some of the most poignant lines about One Moment, One Single Moment (one sound, one single sound) where your choice all lined up and made a difference. Do you remember the last moment that happened? Were you conscious? Did you make your choice with your eyes wide open? Were you awake when you made that choice and would you do it again? Did you curate your path, your point of inflection from then on, or did you let your unconscious addictions drive you?

This concept of a new path once past the point of no return has captivated me lately. We all make choices that push us past a point of no return. The question is did you do it with intention, or was is just an accident of fate?

Can you remember, really remember, those vital points when you finally made THE choice?

  • The new job
  • The new baby
  • The new partner
  • The new love
  • The turning away from a chance
  • The exploration of the unknown
  • The leaving behind of a way of thinking

Were you fully committed, fully awake, fully engaged when you made that choice? Or did you let the winds of time push you down another path?

So here’s my question: “Can you engage yourself and curate your next step?”

Next time can you consciously curate who you are with, who you want to be, where you want to go and not let your old baggage entice you to meander?

See you on the wire
