Blink and you’ll miss it.

Thoughts flood forward and choke us.

A moment’s hesitation – caught in the headlines – and life changes forever.

Often the consequences are not too dire. Maybe we pay a little more. Sometimes we miss the train or the plane.

But occasionally we escape death or fortune by a whisker; often without knowing it.

The word hesitation comes from the Latin for “stuck.”

We train and practice so that it’s easier to get unstuck when the need arrives. We have values and visions for the same reason:

Hesitate and it’s too late.
