The Space Between Stimulus & Response

No comments

As of 2015 YouTube had over 2 million cat videos! But no matter how amusing they are, I’m glad that I’m not a cat. Cats are mastered by their environment, reacting to stimuli & immediately responding. They sense food, danger, or a pretty young feline, and have automatic responses. But automatic responses are not always a good thing, especially in our human society.

Responding to stimuli with auto-responses of anger or jealousy, for example, could easily get us in trouble. Fortunately, our brain allows humans to pause in that gap between stimulus & response.

Facing death in WWII extermination camp, Viktor Frankl found the one area over which he had absolute control was the gap between stimulus & response. Having choice gave him freedom & growth.
