I order to perform at our very best we have to make sense of the world around us. Sense making and making sense.
To hone our senses it’s helpful to have an activity that allows just that. For me it’s running. Scanning and questioning the body, heart and mind. When and why is it going well? Where and how can I improve? What and who can help me?
Strange as it may seem knowing what does and doesn’t make sense allows us to do nothing with confidence. Or more commonly we can shift from reflection to action. Either way a practice of this nature can speed up our response time.
