Turns out the school has a second location in South Austin. And because I knew about the North location, as soon as I saw the name of the location, I quit paying attention . . . because I knew.
I’ve done this before – no doubt will again. And I do get the value of the things we know in life. Without them we’d be lost in many ways.
What has my attention now is when knowing is more of a reaction. I’m now looking at what is possible when I’m present in these circumstances. And where knowing limits me in my creativity, business and personal relatonships. What IS possible when I give up knowing in a reactive way . . . I’m committed to finding out.
