By-passing the moment because I am too busy driving a strategy, or winning a point, or creating a life, is living an oxymoron. Life is not a thing, an entity, a structure. It's a collection. A subset of experiences. A venn diagram of sorts about how I, we, you, they my family, my colleagues, my friends, all define themselves and each other and write their own stories.
Life is a collection of moments. The sum story of which we never know until the chapter is over.
What's the story you are writing,now? Right now? If we froze the action, what words would you want to see on the page that would describe the story of the moment?
Does that suggest an action?
