Default vs Deliberate Living

Pauseability is the space between reaction and stimuli. It is the space where we will find freedom.

People tell me that either I’m free, or I’m not. This is not true. Freedom is not a black or white thing.

We can choose to be free to a certain degree every single day. We can choose to live by default, or to live deliberately to a certain percent every single day.

There is a spectrum between the Default Mode and the Deliberate Mode. How we move across this spectrum is where we will end up with eventually in life.

With pauseability, a man gets to choose: a life where he reacts to things happening to him, or a life where he forges his own path. You’re intelligent enough to choose the latter.
