The traditional view of “reality,” particularly as it
applies to human behavior, is that:
that, through language and social discourse,
we are constantly evolving and creating new
Conversations, we have a choice. If we are
focused on “improving” an organization, a team,
a family, or a relationship, we can choose to
focus on what is broken, what is a problem, and
what is frustrating us. Or we can choose to
focus on that which is life-giving, energizing,
and valuable to us. The choice is fateful!
